Elachbutting Rock

Elachbutting Rock is a massive granite outcrop, a very popular camping spot for 4x4 wheel clubs and for locals, also a popular site for weddings and other gatherings. Elachbutting Rock is a spectacular natural rock formation with similar features to Wave Rock. The rock has a number of large cavern areas and is surrounded by natural bushland.

Elachbutting has a reputation for being bigger, better and more pristine than any Wheatbelt granite rock formation that you may have seen before.

The name Elachbutting is thought to mean ‘that thing standing’ which is quite feasible as Elachbutting is a large granite rock, a prominent landmark standing out from the surrounding countryside. It has a spectacular colourful wave similar to Hyden’s Wave Rock with the added beauty of ‘Monty’s Pass’, a 30m tunnel caused by a rock slide. An echoing cave similar to an amphitheatre is close by.

The rock is around 100km north of Westonia and is easily accessed via well maintained gravel roads.

A single unisex toilet facility is present at Elachbutting Rock. Visitors are encouraged to take all they need for a day trip and then take all they took home with them again.

The 6km track around the rock with its dense trees and shrubs hide many interesting species of flora. The east side is renowned for its masses of Donkey Orchids at the base to the rock. It is also on the western fringe of the Great Western Woodlands.

HOW TO GET THERE

Elachbutting Rock, surrounded by the Elachbutting Nature Reserve, is located in the North East Wheat Belt – right at the boundary where the wheat fields give way to dry red earth and gimlet scrub.

Turn left onto Koorda-Bullfinch Road then right onto Echo Valley Road which will take you the rest of the way to the rock. Another option would be to head north out of town via Sandford Rocks Reserve before meeting up with Koorda-Bullfinch Road.

From Mukinbudin – either head north on Mukinbudin-Wialki Road then right onto Beringbooding then Masefield Road to get to Elachbutting Rock via Bonnie Rock and Beringbooding Rock. Alternatively turn right off Mukinbudin-Wialki Road onto Walgoyne Road, right onto North Road then left onto Forty Six Gate Road which will take you past Yanneymooning Hill and join up with Echo Valley Road.
