Mt. Oxley rocks

Mt Oxley rocks
Mt. Oxley has its own surprise for us. The top of the hill is pitted with small craters. Clusters of depressions of various ages, as evidenced by the various degrees of weathering, are scattered around the hill-top. The locals pass these off as “mysterious” in nature. A more scientific paper [PDF, 350k, p.2, para. 3-5] suggests that these depressions are, more than likely, aboriginal quarry sites used to source grinding stones which were used in trade.
