Ku-rin-gai Chase National Park

Sydney’s sandstone platforms and ridges are covered in ancient engravings of spirit figures, animals, weapons and motifs. While many of these have been built over or lost, they are still in abundance in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park; the truly observant will find them on almost every walk. There are also some paintings and stencils in rock shelters and overhangs. Two of the best known are Red Hands Cave, near West Head, and the extensive rock platform to the south of the start of the Elvina Walking Track.
