The two Rock Shelters located at Neumann Park hold high cultural value to the Yugambeh People. They form part of a larger network of sandstone rock shelters on the sandstone ridge that borders Yarrabilba, Plunkett Conservation Park and Wickham National Park.
There are only two ground level rock shelters. There are many other rock shelters located high up in the sandstone escarpment.
The larger rock shelter to the north was the Tool Making Shelter and was used for stone tool manufacturing, acting as a living workshop.
The smaller rock shelter the Kitchen Shelter was more likely an occupation site, used for camping and cooking.
Lendlease worked with Jabree to care for this special site during and after development. Classroom groups are able to visit and observe the rock shelters to learn more about the cultural significance of the area.
Please respect this special place.
