Marvel at the sheer scale and fascinating ancient geology of Mount Augustus on a 49km 2WD friendly Loop Trail, which allows access to all places within the park including Aboriginal rock engravings (petroglyphs), gorges and open plains.

You might be lucky enough to see wildlife including bungarras (goannas), perenties, euros and birds of prey - particularly at dawn and dusk. With the landscape ablaze with vibrant hues, your selfies will never look better.

Choose from the many walks on offer from a saunter through shady groves of gnarly white-barked river red gums. In cooler months, fit and appropriately equipped experienced bushwalkers take on the challenging climb to the summit to soak up the views.

Take a refreshing dip or unload the canoe at Cattle Pool – a natural permanent pool bustling with birdlife including blue-winged kookaburras and sacred kingfishers.

The risks from exposure and dehydration are significant in this area. During the hotter months (September to April) these risks are extreme and temperatures can often exceed 40°C. Radiant heat from the rocks can increase the temperature by 5-10 degrees celsius. Prepare well for your hike read more at
