Summary

Ooramboo Trail is an easy 500 metre return stroll leading to a low escarpment where you can view Aboriginal artwork.  It is accessed from the Loop Drive at the southern end of Mt Augustus.

It is easy to see the significance of Mount Augustus to the local Wajarri Aboriginal people. There are several significant artwork sites accessible to hikers via marked trails. No doubt there are many more sites not open to the general public due to cultural sensitivities and difficulty to get to. For a quick look and cultural insights, the easy to get to Ooramboo Trail goes to a low escarpment. Look around without touching under ledges and rock walls for Aboriginal engravings. Continue on for a further 100 metres to get to Edney’s Trail.
