ROCK TOURS

Go on a self-guided tour of a variety of Rock formations on a scale to take your breath away and natural bush with abundant flora and fauna are a feature of the district.

Beringbooding Rock is within walking distance of Watson's Way and is the site of the largest water catchment in the southern hemisphere, built in 1937. Features include Aboriginal hand paintings, a balancing boulder, large colourful gnamma hole and two pioneer wells. Surrounded by natural bushland, the area teems with birdlife.

Elachbutting Rock is a massive granite rock formation with large, colourful waves similar to the celebrated Wave Rock at Hyden and a tunnel some 40 metres long, formed by a rock slip.

Drive to the top to view the countryside - you will overlook farmland to the west and virgin bush to the east as this is the perimeter of the North Eastern Wheatbelt.

There is a well, made for early prospectors as they travelled to the Goldfields, and the drive around the base of Elachbutting Rock is 6 km long.

Yanneymooning Rock has large areas of the lovely Silver Princess (Eucalyptus Caesia) growing naturally.

Chiddarcooping Rock is a 1,400 acre granite reserve, with a white breakaway echoing valley and numerous birds and wildflowers, particularly White Leschenaultia and Red Velvet.
