Walga Rock, also known as Walgahna Rock and Walganna Rock, is a granite monolith situated about 530km, 330 miles north-northeast of Perth Western Australia. It is one of the largest granite monoliths in Australia.
Of profound cultural significance to Aboriginal people, the Wajarri elders are the acknowledged traditional owners. An extensive gallery of Aboriginal art exists within a cave in Walga Rock.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, and pay our respects to the Elders, past and present.
