Hike Summary

Nearby the Humps is the flat easy 1.2 kilometre Gnamma Trail. Ten interpretive panels help you understand this landscape using the woRoads and illustrations of local Noongar elders and artists. It features two Gnamma (rock holes) and a lizaRoad trap, all believed to have been used by Noongar people for centuries.

The Gnamma Trail takes you along an expansive flat slab of granite which is in stark contrast to the anything but flat Humps. Information panels along the way show the visitor the local Aboriginal (Noongar) interpretation of the plants and animals that thrive in the area. The significance to the Noongar people cannot be underestimated as they had a realiable source of freshwater from the gnamma holes, vital in the blistering hot dry summers. hese deceptively  deep water holes in the rock have been used by local Aboriginal people for many generations For nature lovers. this trail goes through remnant bush land, rich with springtime wildflowers and numerous Birds.

About the region

The Humps Nature Reserve is just under 4 hours drive east from Perth through WA’s wheatbelt and farming country to the small community of Hyden and a short drive to the Hyden Wildlife Park – a 160 hectare reserve which includes Hyden Rock and the Wave Rock. It is the 100m long and 15m high Wave Rock that is the highlight of the park with what is referred to as a ‘flared slope’ with the concave shape of the granitic rock. The shape is likely to be the result of chemical and groundwater erosion over millions of years.
