Very early inhabitants of the region around Mt Warrawolong are believed to be the Darkinjung people, although the Awabakal and Wanaruah nations are also mentioned. This mountain top is thought to have been used as a ceremonial meeting place as people from hundreds of kilometres visited the area and made their way to Mount Yengo (25 km west of Wollombi), which is a place of great significance throughout the ancient nations of eastern Australia. There is frequent evidence of camping sites and the flat, exposed areas of Hawkesbury sandstone that occur in this region have provided an ideal ‘canvas’ for Aboriginal artists for thousands of years. Of the very many rock art pictures to be seen, there are ancestral images of animals and ancestors from the dream-time. Perhaps surprisingly, there are also fairly modern engravings that depict horses and even sailing ships. Maybe Alkira’s mother created one of these.
