Mysterious glyphs that pose questions about their origin are only a small part of this must do bush walk on top of the hill. Interesting rock formations, beautiful and interesting topography and vegetation. Highly recommend some time out with nature here.

Please don't touch or take anything from here. This is one of the most sacred places in Australia. Above the Hieroglyphs is the full story. Look for fossils. Truly amazing.

There are so many claims that these hieroglyphs are fake but they are real! Go there and you will see they exist. Many claimed Aussie hippies did this, or post Vietnam returnees were playing a prank; then came another claim that maybe some 1918 pranksters...More
