Scarred tree

A scarred tree in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park at Riverside, near Walcha. Most likely bark was cut by aborigines some two hundred years ago (give or take a hundred). We couldn’t see any metal axe marks so, most likely, it was done before white men came to, or became common in, the area.

The bark which has been removed is more than a Bob (my unit of measure) in height and is the largest scar we’ve seen in the area.
