Mount Wudinna is the one of the region's biggest tourist drawcards - a trip to the district would not be complete without visiting this impressive natural rock formation. It is one of Australia's largest granite monoliths.
Located a convenient 10 kilometres off the National Highway One, access to the attraction is through the town of Wudinna. The roads are well sign-posted and suitable for travel by cars, caravans and buses. When you get there you will find a recently developed Interpretive Trail. The trail provides a pleasant picturesque walk and an abundance of information about the rock, its history, formation and local flora.
At the base of Mt Wudinna you will find several picnic sites with barbecue facilities, a parking area, toilets and an architecturally designed shelter, also with barbecue facilities. There is also a parking area suitable for buses and caravans.
A walk to the top of Mt Wudinna can take only a matter of minutes and you don't need to be an Olympic athlete to complete this feat. The walk is definitely worth it as the views from 261 metres above ground level are spectacular and span many miles around.
Camping is not permitted.
