A rock‐shelter situated in the sandstone hills of eastern central Queensland which contains one of the longest and most complete cultural sequences in Australia. Excavations by John Mulvaney in 1962 revealed deposits spanning the period 17 000 bc through to 550 bc. The stone tools from the lowest levels through to about 3000 bc comprised steep‐edge flake scrapers and cores. Between 3000 bc and 550 bc there was an extensive assemblage of Australian Small Tool Tradition. Pieces of ochre were scatted right through the sequence. The walls of the cave carry images of stencilled hands and other images including boomerangs, shields, and spear‐throwers.
