Discover how early European settlers sought Aboriginal trails as they opened roads from Sydney Finchley Track is home to both a European Trig Point from which you can view the amazing surrounding countryside and also harbours a number of indigenous sites including the famous Aboriginal Rock Art (32º 58' 49"S, 151º 0' 49"E). To get there from Wollombi head south and turn off the Great North Road near Laguna into Yango Creek Rd and then into Upper Yango Creek Rd. Follow National Park signs which lead along Finchley Track to Finchley Trig Point, about 14 km. Around 800 metres past the trig point is the art site itself. This is a large rock art site containing a good example of Aboriginal rock art from this region. It is also readily accessible and well signed. There is a short cultural walk with explanatory signs and a campsite about 200m beyond the engravings. This trail is close to the famous Australian "Great North Walk" being about 23 km west of Flat Rock. It is also not far off the Great North Road built by British convicts very early in Australia's European history.
