↑ 6 m
↓ -6 m

Moderate track
Starting from the dirt car park in Mount Augustus National Park, this walk takes you on a stroll to Edney's Spring and back. The walk is culturally prominent as it allows visitors to see Aboriginal engravings (petroglyphs) along an escarpment. The trail is flat and sandy, but there can be certain uneven sections. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wajarri people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
