i live in geelong and there is a place called dog rocks aout 20 minutes away and im just wondering if where talking about the same place???

The Dog Rocks just outside Geelong is a tiny granite outcrop and from memory I doubt it's even got anything worth bouldering on.
Pity really.

well its a whiel ago now but i remmember brian sayign that they didnt realy want to signpost it or anythign like that becasue it seems that if signs mentioning the aboriginal significans of the area are put up there will be people purposly causign damadge in that area and defacing not only the signs but the rocks themselfs...
and odd justification but it may wellbe true.

when i'm back home i enjoy sacred sites by going bouldering without chalk and staying away from rock art areas. i still end up getting in trouble with certain locals, the most common being the self appointed enviro-nazi, government "official" or drunk fisho. haven't had any trouble with aboriginal owners, only ever been solo and whenever i've discussed it they've been pretty cool.
