While attempting to relocate a published Tasmanian painting site, another nearby rock shelter was found to contain painting on its walls. The new cave contains at least three hand stencils and other marks in red and yellow ochre. As the site previously published has been destroyed by the flooding of Meadowbank Dam, the new site, designated Meg's Mit rock shelter, is the only known painting site in Tasmania. The painting is described and possible hypotheses for its origin proposed. An archaeological strategy for the site is outlined.
