On the 4 August 2017, The University of Newcastle (Australia)’s Natural History Illustration Field Studies & Culture Class NHIL3004 visited the Finchley Park Reserve (also known as the Northern Map Site or Flat Rock) to undertake a site documentation through art, film, photography and digitisation using drone technology. The aim was to visually record, contextualise and interpret the site’s present condition, including its flora, fauna, Aboriginal engravings, motifs and landscape in context. This work forms part of the greater initiative of the East Coast Rock Art Collaborative Project.
