Granite Outcrops

Dec 13 Elachbuttg RockElachbutting Rock

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 large thing standing" which is quite feasible as the large granite rock formation is a prominate landmark standing out from the surrounding countryside.

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.
