Relocating the Westridge Aboriginal scar trees


Another trip this morning to try and relocate several Aboriginal Scarred Trees on Stirling Ridge in Yarralumla. Apart from last week where I found one tree I haven't been there since 2012 so armed with my short memory and Vlad Mastara we started searching.

We managed to locate/relocate 3 trees distinctive because of their obvious age and after a fair bit of circling around possible trees are pretty confident that the trees pictured below are authentic.

The trees and their scars are very old. The deadwood 'face' of the scars are showing the destructive signs of weathering with one find now totally eaten through by termites. The others remain.




From memory there are more up there.. another day.
