I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Take a walk in a special place

The car park is just off the main sealed highway of Thunderbolts way and has plenty of space for cars and caravans. The walk takes you through a remnant of natural New England Tableland bush and is easy to follow as well as undemanding. There is a small section of uphill and there may be slippery areas after rain.
There are a couple of informative signs regarding Aboriginal life and the rock art painting site which is thought to be from 150 to 500 years old. It is thought to be a representation of a plains turkey (bustard) done with ochre laden fingers and sticks. Every effort has been made to protect this site by placing silicone drip lines above the artwork to divert water flow.
