Mount Augustus is the world’s largest monocline and looms 750 metres above its surrounding landscape and can be seen from 160 kilometres away. The rock itself which culminates in a small peak on a plateau is about eight kilometres long and covers an area of 4,795 hectares. About twice the size of Uluru it is the biggest ‘rock’ in the world. Walk trails to the top of the rock will allow visitors to see a range of fascinating geological formations, aboriginal rock paintings and engravings, and an abundance of animal and bird-life. Head out to Emu Hill Lookout at sunset for spectacular photo opportunities or drive the 49 kilometre scenic trail.
