Balancing Rock (private property, please view from roadside only)

Turn left into Qualen West Road to find a site of Noongar significance. Timeless, unchanging natural landmarks were often used as waymarkers by the Ballardong Noongar people and still hold significant meanings in traditional culture. Sometimes called 'the Balancing Boot' today - what do you see?
