Aboriginal Rock Painting 

 

 

Rock and cave paintings by the Dharawal (or Tharawal) people, the traditional land owners in this region, were made well before European settlers arrived in Australia.  These people were present in the southern Sydney and Illawarra regions when the colonists arrived in 1788.  These photographs were made in the early 1900s’ by local photographer P.C. Marlow.  It is unfortunate that some of the paintings have been vandalised in recent years.  The locations of these paintings are now known only to a few.
