This more challenging trail links into the Summit Trail after 1.5km and again after 3km. This gives several alternate route options in the first half of the Summit Trail. The first junction of the Summit and Gully trails allows for a shorter loop walk. From Flintstone Rock, continue up the Gully Trail for 1.5km, then at the first junction, walk back down to the car park via the Summit Trail.

Mount Augustus is a two day drive from Perth via Carnarvon or Meekatharra. The park is 465km from Carnarvon via Gascoyne Junction. The 172km road between Carnarvon and Gascoyne Junction is sealed. All all other roads in the area are gravel but suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles. Roads are often closed after rainfall. Seek advice from the local shires.

Be aware that there are long distances between settlements, supplies and services – this is outback Australia. Drive to the road conditions and obey road closures and speed limits.

Carry extra fuel, water and supplies in case of unforeseen events/delays. Always stay on signposted tracks and stay with your vehicle if you break down.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
