Approximately 500m south of State Highway 83 along Livingstone-Duntroon Road the large limestone outcrop that forms this historic area is on the eastern side of the road.
This historic place (Rock Shelter, Record Number 5662) is the main caged rock art site within the Maerewhenua Historic Area. The historic place consists of a deep, partly stone-floored shelter, the surface of which has been decorated with many drawings. The landscaping and developments that have occurred in this area have been primarily to provide access to this caged shelter, as the most visible and accessible rock art in this historic area. This historic place is located on private land, but a path to the rock art site has been made accessible to public for the purpose of viewing this historic place.
