Monthly Chronicle - - Outdoor Lifestyle -

It’s a short walk down to Red Hands Cave from the Res­o­lute Pic­nic Area. The walk loops from the pic­nic area through the heath and down to the over­hang of the cave. The Abo­rig­i­nal rock art, hand sten­cil is faded, un­sur­pris­ing given it’s es­ti­mated to be over 2,000 years old. This makes for an in­ter­est­ing cul­tural walk, you can also en­joy a pic­nic lunch at Res­o­lute Pic­nic Area and the spec­tac­u­lar views from the end of West Head Rd whilst in the area.
