The Biggest Rock

One of the best kept secrets in Australia is the “Road to the Rock”. The world’s biggest rock … no it’s not Uluru, that’s a misconception.

The biggest rock is actually nestled in the Gascoyne Murchison region of Western Australia. It’s dated at over 1700 million years old and is 3 times older than Uluru and twice as big.

The closest town to the Rock is Cue, in Western Australia. A gorgeous little outback town complete with an old Guest House, Queen of the Murchison, and many old 1930’s built buildings.

The entire area was originally a gold mining region, with many remains of old buildings and even an entire ghost town featuring the old remains of the Big Bell Hotel.

Not to be outdone, there are also water pools ideal for swimming at The Rock. Cattle Pool is nearby and is a glorious place to swim and relax in a fresh water pool. Surrounded by amazing rock formations and wildflowers.

There are a few WWOOF Australia Host Farms in the region, so get the Mobile App out and center your map on Western Australia. A mixture of cattle stations and large tropical fruit farming.

If you’re looking for a road trip, then this 9 day trip from Perth, Western Australia would be ideal, letting you experience true Aussie Outback desert experiences on safe well maintained roads.
