Flora and fauna
Though Mount Augustus is around halfway between Highways 1 and 95, road access tends to be better from Highway 1 than 95, even though both routes are long and deserted.
From Carnarvon, head east onto Carnarvon–Mullewa Road for 171 km until Gascoyne Junction. Once at the junction, turn left and use Ullawarra Road for 253 km. After the 253 km, turn right and continue for 45 km until you arrive at Mount Augustus.
The closest point of Hwy 95 to the park is in Meekatharra, a town 700 km northeast from the end of Tonkin Hwy (Hwy 4) in the outer rims of Perth. From Meekatharra, head northwest for 241 km, and remain onto the road, continuing on Landor-Mount Augustus Road. Follow local signs from there.
The roads aren't paved – bring a good vehicle, and make sure you bring plenty of drinkable water.
Fees and permits
- 1 Mount Augustus (Mt Augustus). The primary attraction in the park, and while the claim "world's largest monolith" is only used for tourism marketing, even if it weren't, the monocline is still a spectacular rock formation twice as large as Uluru. Mt Augustus also contains several pieces of Indigenous rock art, which can be seen along the base walk.
