Very challenging
Starting from the dirt car park in Mount Augustus National Park, this walk takes you to a rocky outcrop that offers open views of the surrounding plains. After you traverse the flat stony creek bed for a while, the walk starts to ascend until you reach the rocky outcrop that offers exhilarating views across the plains and the green ribbon of the Lyons River to the north. On the way up, there can be sections that require rock scramblings and undercut cliff edges that require experience and caution. There is also not a lot of shade through the walk; take care during the summer and bring excessive water. A high level of bushwalking experience is recommended. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
