“Aboriginal stone tools of various shapes have been discovered in and around the Blue Mountains, some confirmed to be c. 50,000 years old. A rock shelter at Wentworth Falls was occupied from at least 22,000 years ago, close to the last glacial maximum, when the temperatures were c. 9ºC lower than now and since there have been minor fluctuations in climate which gradually became more hospitable. The Central Blue Mountains was used for religious purposes and the ridges to the East and the West for
domestic occupation. Abundant stone tools at some sites signify sequential industrial production of Yarramundian, then Capertian, and then Bondaian
tools.” (Stockton, E, 2010)
