Information

This is a dark and mysterious waterhole situated in an isolated gorge. The rock hole is sheltered by high rocky walls affording it shade and the ability to keep water for a longer period than many exposed rock holes in the arid Pilbara.

The waterhole itself penetrates beneath the overhanging rock faces and has a rocky bottom preventing seepage.

Nearby is a cavern and cave with signs of regular habitation by traditional owners of long ago. Grinding stones are present as well as very faint remnants of rock art.

This is an amazing place to which no roads yet exist. Please tread lightly any who visit.
