NextMount Augustus and Walga Rock (1 week trip)
Visitors Welcome – sorry no K9's. Mount Augustus - Located 852 kilometres north of Perth is Australia’s largest inselberg, even larger than it’s more famous cousin Ayres Rock. An inselberg or monadnock is an isolated rock hill, knob, ridge, or small mountain that rises abruptly from a gently sloping or virtually level surrounding plain. ... If the inselberg is dome-shaped and formed from granite or gneiss, it can also be called a bornhardt, though not all bornhardts are inselbergs. Walga Rock – 48 kms out of Cue, this huge bright orange rock covers about 50 hectares, and is 5km in circumference and about 1.7km in length. This makes it the second-biggest monolith in Australia (after Uluru). Jokers Tunnel in Yalgoo - about 220 kilometres inland from Geraldton in Western Australia. Full itinerary to follow after discussing with attendees. We could change the return journey to take in Gascoyne Junction and Carnarvon instead. Below is just an idea..
