Picnic at Elachbutting Rock

by Cellobella on Sunday, July 20, 2008

On the way back from the station last week we stopped by Elachbutting Rock. This granite outcrop is one of many in the area but a bit more special because of Monty’s pass – where part of the rock has sheared off and created a tunnel, and the Rock Wave…. cunningly a little like Wave Rock would you believe.

The Shire says the name Elachbutting is thought to mean “that large thing standing”. Cute. And also according to the Westonia Shire: “Elachbutting has a reputation for being bigger, better and more pristine than any Wheatbelt granite rock formation that you may have seen before.”

This little redsultana story shows you what it is like. Your commentators are Hugamuga and Dippity.

Before I go… would you have been slightly concerned that your kids might have fallen off the side of the rock?
