Mt. Augustus**The biggest Rock on Earth WA

Augustus is two and a half time bigger than the more popular Uluru and covers an area of 4800 hectares. While the Uluru is a monolith, the Mt. Augustus is a monocline and rises 717Mtr above the surrounding sand plains, sitting on granite believed a 1650 million years old.* To read more, go to our Website**www.australiannomads1.com/  To go there we choose the KINGSFORD SMITH MAIL RUN ROUTE, which we started in Meekatherra and goes to Carnarvon.
