Abstract

During a reconnaissance on the north coast of New South Wales I examined two occurrences of water-worn pebbles, at Yamba and Crescent Head, which had been quarried for the manufacture of Hoabinhien I type implements. Their importance lies in the fact that each site presents a single industry unmixed with the numerous extraneous influences found on kitchen-middens south of Port Macquarie. Moreover, it appears probable that neither site has been visited previously by collectors.
