Description:
Notes: Kings Tableland Aboriginal Place is significant to Aboriginal culture because it includes, but is not limited to, a sandstone rock platform with extensive grinding and other grooves, a shelter with rock art that has been recorded as being the oldest Aboriginal site in the Blue Mountains region and containing unique vertically engraved depictions of kangaroo and bird tracks. It also provides the Gundungurra peoples with a traditional and historical connection to the Blue Mountains area. The area was used as a camping and meeting place where connections with neighbouring Aboriginal groups travelling through their Country and along the traditional walking tracks (now known as the Great Western Highway and the Ingar Fire Trail) occurred. The Kings Tableland was historically used as a camping site by Aboriginal residents of the Burragorang Valley Aboriginal camp who would walk to Wentworth Falls and Katoomba for employment purposes until the early 1900s.
