Would you believe it if we told you that within WA you can find the World's largest single rock? Well you better believe it because Mount Augustus standing 715 meters above the surrounding flat plains and with a central ridge that runs 8 kilometres long, is that very rock and she looms proud in the Mount Augustus National Park.


1. Mount Augustus -  World's largest Monocline. The local Wajarri Aboriginal people call the mountain "Burringurrah". You can find Aboriginal engravings along the trails.
