An ancient rock art site believed to be tens of thousands of years old has been discovered in the suburban area of Sydney, Australia.

The site has been hidden for millennia by plant coverage, until Sydney Water came across a traditional fishing hook nearby the rock art and unveiled this lost art.

It’s possible that people have been walking aimlessly past this amazing find for years, mistaking it for graffiti, but boy were they wrong.

The rock art is primarily hand stencils, but there are also figures of eels and crescent shapes. The hand stencils were likely made by women and children due the size.

The site’s location is being kept secret to avoid people from vandalising the rock art.
