The Mooney Mooney Aboriginal Area is a large, gently sloping site with many engravings of kangaroos, fish, eels and figures. Unfortunately, the middle of the site has been quarried for its sandstone, so many carvings are probably missing.
The most unusual design is this enormous figure that has an elaborate head dress sporting long stalks topped with round shapes. The left arm of this figure is holding the hand of a similar figure just next to this one but is not shown in this image. This engraving is about 7 meters tall. Interestingly, this head dress design is reminiscent of the Wandjina figures from northern Australia. These engraved figures were first discovered by a well known local rock art hunter, Bob Pankhurst, about 20 tears ago. Bobs images of these two large figures can be seen here – Mooney Mooney – Large Anthropomorphs.
This is a pair of small fish nearly hidden at one end of this site.
Sometime in the past someone has painted this kangaroo in with white paint.
At the far northern end of this large engraving site is this beautiful gallery. There is a life size figure with two 3 metre long eels. At the bottom left of this group is a small lizard with its tongue poking out and just above is a small wallaby and possum. Along the back of the lower eel may be a long fin or perhaps a spear or club. This composite image comprises 610 separate images.
This kangaroo engraving has almost worn away, all that is left is the head.
This kangaroo engraving covers an area of about 3 mt square.
This very small engraving depicts some kind of animal, maybe a small marsupial.
This is the largest kangaroo engraving at this site and is around 4 mt from nose to tail.
