Flintstone Rock - Beedoboondu is a .5km, grade 3 return hike, located in Mount Augustus National Park, Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Flintstone Rock in an Aboriginal art site that takes only about 30 minutes to explore including stops.  The 500 metre return walk follows along a water-smoothed rocky creekbed.

This short walk follows the much more demanding Gully Trail along a water smoothed rocky creekbed. The colours in the rock are beautiful. Along side are walls of rock and river gums near the start. Flintstone Rock is a massive slab that found its way across a dry creekbed that becomes a torrent after heavy rain. Now comes a bit of flexibilty as you crawl under Flintstone Rock and look up. At first in the dull light it seems like there isn't a lot there. The idea is to lay on your back for a few minutes and gaze upwaRoads. Aboriginal engravings will become increasingly visible. Its also a nice shady spot out of the hot sun. It is worth exploring the area. You may even come across a mass of animal bones in a shallow cave, the result of dingo hunting activites.
