The Gnamma Trail takes you along an expansive flat slab of granite which is in stark contrast to the anything but flat Humps.

Information panels along the way show the visitor the local Aboriginal (Noongar) interpretation of the plants and animals that thrive in the area. The significance to the Noongar people cannot be underestimated as they had a realiable source of freshwater from the gnamma holes, vital in the blistering hot dry summers. hese deceptively  deep water holes in the rock have been used by local Aboriginal people for many generations

For nature lovers. this trail goes through remnant bush land, rich with springtime wildflowers and numerous birds.
