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.

This is an amazing site. Very well hidden. I had almost given up on finding the hieroglyphics, when there they were. The small canyOn wall is full of ancient Egyptian symbols. It is a very special place.

Worth checking out. It's a nice walk to get to as well. There's a track but there's some bushg you'll be walking through too.

Very difficult to find but probably for the best. Many people have tried to debunk these and yes some hieroglyphs have been edited and things added to the walls over time but these are real. There are 3 very insightful videos on YouTube with real...More
