Cherrypool: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Black Range State Park


Black Range State Park protects rugged and spectacular bushland in an area where much of the natural vegetation has been cleared for farming.

The park is an excellent spot for bushwalking. A long walk commences at the Black Range Picnic Area and leads to the top of the Black Range providing great views.

Rocklands Reservoir, which joins the south-east side of the park is a good place to camp and enjoy days on the water boating and fishing.

Manja Shelter - Hamilton


Manja (pronounced Manya) , has some of the best examples of hand stencils in Victoria. A total of 90 stencils have been recorded in these two shelters. We believe hand stencils were used to record a visit to a site, and to renew the ties a person had to a particular place.

At this site there are also animal tracks and many human stick figures. Manja is located in an impressive sandstone outcrop. Have a walk around and try to imagine what it would have been like to live here before Europeans arrived.

Billimina Rock Art Site - Wartook Valley


Billimina shelter is an impressive rock overhang where Jardwadjali camped from time to time and left many red paintings. Archaeologists who excavated this site in 1976 found stone tools and the remains of plant and animal foods. These materials demonstrated that groups camped here from late winter to early summer and caught kangaroos and small mammals such as bandicoots, possums and bettongs. They also collected emu eggs and freshwater mussels.

The most interesting aspect of the paintings at Billimina is the many bars arranged in horizontal rows. We believe these marks were used to count events in retelling stories or to record the number of days spent at a place.

While they are sometimes difficult to see, there are also emus, kangaroo and emu tracks, and 55 human stick figures painted here. Some of the human figures found in the middle panel are illustrated above, see if you can find them.
