(SJ) Mount Augustus and Walga Rock – 09 July 2021

 

Who knew that Australia’s biggest rock is not in fact Uluru? Instead, it is Western Australia that lays claim to having the largest rock in the world. Mount Augustus is one of the true wonders of Australia and the largest rock on the planet. The local Wajarri Aboriginal people called the mountain “Burringurrah”. Walga Rock is a giant monolith, where you can see the largest gallery of Aboriginal rock paintings in Western Australia.
