Very easy
This short walk follows a footpath to a large rock platform with some well-preserved Aboriginal engravings. Named after Bulgandry man, an ancestral hero and one of the more detailed engravings at the site, this is clearly a special place. The footpath gently winds through the bush before following a timber platform around the engravings. This walk is accessible for people in wheelchairs but it is important to note the path has deteriorated in some places, making it a bit bouncy.
