An interpretive trail provides an interesting walk to the top and around the base of the rock. Picnic, shelter, free gas barbecue and toilet facilities are available.

This spectacular granite dome, 14 kilometres north of Minnipa, displays distinctive wave-like features which make it a must to visit. Picnic, shelter, free gas barbecue and toilet facilities are available. A walking/drive trail circumnavigates the rock.

Polda Rock

A water reserve that originally supplied the Wudinna township, Polda has recently been transferred to the District Council as a recreation reserve. Much of the original infrastructure, including the hand constructed stone channel to collect water from the rock and water reservoir, remain. Picnic, free gas barbecue, shelter and toilet facilities are currently available with a walking trail surrounding the rock.

Polkdinney Park, Eyre Highway, Kyancutta

The park contains several implements which are indicative of the equipment used in the early days of settlement. Included is a scrub roller, water pump, wagon, road grader and Mouldboard plough. A picnic table is provided and the park is in close proximity to the Kyancutta Store, public phone and publically-accessible toilet.

Standley Park, Medley Tce, Wudinna

The park is well maintained by Council and community members.
