Flintstone Rock - Beedoboondu, Mount Augustus NP
About the Trail
This short walk follows the much more demanding Gully Trail along a water smoothed rocky creekbed. The colours in the rock are beautiful. Along side are walls of rock and river gums near the start. Flintstone Rock is a massive slab that found its way across a dry creekbed that becomes a torrent after heavy rain. Now comes a bit of flexibilty as you crawl under Flintstone Rock and look up. At first in the dull light it seems like there isn't a lot there. The idea is to lay on your back for a few minutes and gaze upwards. Aboriginal engravings will become increasingly visible. Its also a nice shady spot out of the hot sun.
It is worth exploring the area. You may even come across a mass of animal bones in a shallow cave, the result of dingo hunting activites.
