Yeddonba aboriginal art site is "hidden" in the bush near Mt Pilot. This site is well worth a visit as it has been clearly labelled, well set out and clearly marked pathways, fully maintained and provides some extremely interesting facts, spectacular views and a "strange feeling" being in a sacred place. The rock caves are also fascinating.
It will leave you with the question of how were these "Chiltern" aboriginals able to paint a Tasmanian Tiger ?
