Detailed Hiking Trail Guide:

Starting from the Hollow Mountain Car Park, look for this entry point to the trail.

Follow the sign to the LEFT towards Gulgurn Manja Shelter

The first section of the trail is flat and sandy. Enjoy the scenery and wildlife. I spotted a few wallabies hopping around.

Halfway along the sandy track turns to a flat rocky surface.

Head up the rocks veering to the LEFT.

Ahead is the Aboriginal art site.

Some descriptive signs are provided detailing the drawings you see before you.

When you’re done observing the Aboriginal Art Site and the views, turn around and head back the way you came.

And back to the Hollow Mountain Car Park. Try out the Hollow Mountain hiking trail if you are feeling up for a bit of a challenge. The views are spectacular.
