Beringbooding Rock

Beringbooding Rock
Beringbooding Rock is another granite outcrop a few kilometres west of Elechbutting Rock. Like Karalee Rock it was used as a rock water catchment. In fact it is the largest in Australia. The rock wall was built in 1937 by 100 men on sustenance during the depression. It took two years.

Again, I found a variety of plants flowering in the sand at the base of the rock and a Striated Pardalote called the entire time.

Acacia nyssophylla. So red!
