Travelled here with a group of friends via the Ashburton road, camped at the Mt Augusta caravan - helpful and friendly, great facilities, clean, fire pits with a beaut view of Mt Augustus. Countryside was amazing, skies so blue and the most amazing stars at night. The walks and drives well worth doing.

Great trek to the top of the biggest rock in the world. Have to be fit and take plenty of water but definitely worth the effort. One for the Bucket list

Once past the closed wet roads we got to the tourist park and were welcomed. The only real rules were to stay off the great outback lawn with wheels. The showers were old but good hot water. The rock has some nice spots to walk and visit for a day and one 12kmr return walk which works out for another... More

Climbing this massive rock in 45 degrees celsius was truly a challenge. It is truly something I will never forget! An experience like nothing else!

Fantastic Mountain. The campsite is on the north side, but the best place to climb to the summit is on the south side, so one must drive around the rock. It can be a six hour walk up to the summit on a grade 5 walk, so one must be fit, have sufficient outback experience, know about bushcraft, carry plenty... More

This is a review of the camp ground next to the homestead. For details on the national park and walk tracks see my review under 'Mt Augustus National Park" . Lets face it, there is no choice as to where to stay because this is the only caravan park and you can't free camp in the national park, but here... More

This had been on our to do list for years. Bigger than Uluru, The World's Biggest Rock is truly awe inspiring. Unlike Uluru it has a thick covering of vegetation. The drive around the base is 49kms with signs directing you to Aboriginal art sites, lookouts, walking trails and the beautiful Cattle Pool, an oasis in this very arid area.... More

This is one of those places I had been wanting to go to for a long time and I was not disappointed. The fact that is it a long way away from anywhere adds to its allure. The remoteness of the location is awe inspiring. There are a number of different walks you can do from short strolls to see... More

great link to Australia, fantastic dream time stories, beautiful locals, truly a stunning location to watch sunsets. I lived here for a few years, go during spring for fantastic wild flowers, winter is a great season to climb the rock, summer, too hot head to the beach instead. Before you go check the weather forecast the roads close in bad... More
