Hieroglyphs on the Hawkesbury

"The Osiris, the scribe Ani, whose word is truth,

saith: Hail, Temu! What manner of land is this

unto which I have come?

it hath not water, it hath not air, it is depth

unfathomable, it is black as the blackest night,

and men wander helplessly therein".

The Goford Egyptian Hieroglyphs Cartouche

High up on the cliffs overlooking Brisbane Waters, near Gosford, on the Central Coast north of Sydney, about 1900, two bushwalkers chanced to enter a narrow cleft, formed by the splitting of a monolith sandstone rock in ages past. Engraved upon the walls to their amazement, they found a mass of clearly recognisable hieroglyphs.

In those times the Gosford district was still very much a gum and scrub covered wilderness, so it is little wonder that the inscriptions had remained hidden for so long. The cleft is on a roughly north-south axis, with some 480 hieroglyphs cut into the east and west rockfaces. Eight more glyphs were afterwards found by the men further north, engraved into a cliff side facing Brisbane Waters.

Few people knew of these remarkable engravings for generations, until land development bought nearby housing, and city council service roads close to the glyphs. By the 1970's the ''re-discovery' of the site saw a great many people visiting the inscriptions. Public interest in the glyphs led to speculation that ancient Egyptians had visited Australia.

University archaeologists attempting to counter these suggestions, offered many amusing counter-explanations; the best being that "two World War One diggers having served in Egypt, later carved the hieroglyph's {from memory we assume!}. It stretches the imagination to accept that two ordinary ex-servicemen with a 'crash course' in Egyptian temple hieroglyphs could possibly have carved these inscriptions.

Having examined them myself with noted biblical archaeologist, Dr Alan Roberts, we are agreed upon the great age of the glyphs. Not only do they display ages of weathering, but a microscopic Lichen, which normally takes up to 400 years to form, coats the symbols...What do these Glyphs tell us? They reveal the existence of a large colony that once covered an area extending from Gosford in the north to the Palm Beach/Hawkesbury area to the south.

A colony that existed for generations as an important base, from which explorers set sail in search of riches elsewhere on our coast, or perhaps eastwards beyond our shores. They tell of regular arrivals from the homeland; but are primary funerary records of the burials of eight local Pharoahs, and a hint of the northern {Gympie} colony of Ra. The following are my own translations; {Only two sets are mentioned here, the rest are in my book "Pyramids in the Pacific"}

{East wall, from north to south}

Set One:

"The body of the son, Na-qu-teb-t {cartouche}

Sail and transport with care in the second month of winter, the scribe of the two crowns

Perform magical ceremonies for the dead son"
