  • The Mount Augustus

Here is the world’s biggest rock. Often, most Western Australians joke that they don’t joke that they have no compelling reason to see other rock – that is, the Uluru rock. This is because regardless of Uluru’s notoriety, this region has a rock two times as large at 860 meters. Also, it has the impression of having various shadings, according to the hour of the day (from profound indigo to a dazzling pink). It is also intensely vegetated, making it very attractive in wildflower seasons.
