Stockmen’s marks

We’d been told that some Aboriginal stockmen (and perhaps others) had carved their initials into a Kurrajong tree on the old bridle track near Oxley Wild Rivers National Park at Riverside. We set out to find the tree (think “needle in a haystack” here) and found nothing on the way down the ridge. On the way back up, however, we found the tree! From memory, I think these initials (or perhaps numbers) were around 50 or 60 years old.
