Mt Augustus is very remote but merits visiting due to its status as the largest rock in the world. It’s not as spectacular as Uluru but there are many interesting walks and there is no barrier to walking to the top - although that’s a...More

The roads are well maintained & the walking trails are well marked. The temperatures can rise rapidly so early morning hiking is best. The views from edney’s lookout are worth the climb. Wear sturdy shoes, hat & take plenty of water & snacks. The geology...More

Beautiful scenery! Great walking provided not too hot! A must! Mount Augustus is awesome, twice the size of Uluru. It is definitely worth the drive from Gascoyne Junction. The Mt Augustus Tourist Place is the ideal place to camp.

Stayed in the little oasis in the middle of the outback. Stunning views of the mountain. The climb to the top of the mountain was hard but worth it. 3 hours up and 2 hours back down.

From Edney’s Lookout (Class 4) you can see the Mount Augustus Tourist Park and sweeping views of the vast landscape to the north east.

Wow! Where do I start. This must be what Uluru was once like before it became overly commercial. It is a tough drive out there, but so worth the effort. We went in from Gascoyne Junction and decided to take the Carnarvon-Mullewa road and turn...More

We did this route in early July 17 in a 150 series and off road camp trailer. Road was ok, some rough spots but worth the trip. Can't wait to do it again.
