Welcome to Mt Augustus National Park
Surrounding the monolith is Mt Augustus National Park, (parks.dpaw.wa.gov.au/park/mount-augustus; admission free). Within the park is a 49km loop drive around the 8km-long massif (known as Burringurrah in the local language) – the drive allows changing views of the rock's many faces, and is suitable for 2WD vehicles. It also gives access to walking trails and Aboriginal rock-art sites, including the superb summit trail (12km return, six hours, requiring a high level of fitness).
Head to Emu Lookout, about 6km northwest of the park boundary on the Cobra-Mt Augustus Rd, for great views of the inselberg, especially at sunset.
