This Shelter contains lots of hand stencils and other figures. Underneath the slab of rock are lots of lines and figures,
some familiar and some hard to make out.

Really not sure what the 2 engravings above the Man engraving are meant to depict. You can clearly see the eye in 1 and both look like they have trunks, in both the back legs are more pronounced than the front. There are more engravings on this rock shelf but hard to see. These engravings would be best viewed in the late afternoon but due to a 6-7 hour return walk that means an overnight camp.

Above photo on the same rock shelf as previous photos would be the best example I have seen of how engravings are created. From what I have read, first with a sharper stone a series of indentations or holes would be drilled by turning the stone left to right and then it's a matter of joining the dots. Down below this rock shelf along the rock walls are a some paintings but so faded not good for viewing. Still visible uder an overhang with better protection from the elements are at least half a dozen hand stencils.

Not something you see every day, about 200-300 metres to the right of this natural arch is a cave with faint charcoal drawings and just out of sight down to the left are a few caves and shelters with hand stencils and artwork.

In this cave just down from the natural arch there are some drawings and paintings but like most sites very faded. Some hand stencils out the front as you can see are still very visible and if you look closely up the back of the cave as well. In caves to the left and right are more evidence of occupation with more hand stencils and a Kangaroo in charcoal which is the best of the drawings to show in below images.
