I just discovered a corner of Western Australia that not too many people go to explore - which is a real shame because it is top notch!
If you have every been east of Perth (300km or so) and travelled via the less popular routes you would have seen numerous granite outcrops. Some of these are famous - like Wave Rock & Cave Hill - but there are stack of rocks (supported by picnic & camping facilties) out there in the central wheatbelt that are arguably even better!
The photo you see with this blog is me on top of Yorkrakine Rock. We camped the night at the base and then set off on our mountain bikes to explore the tor. A winding track gives you access up via the back to the top of the rock (almost two rocks as there is a large valley in the middle) and cairns. The fun part is picking your line as your ride down the other side - it can be as steep or gentle as you like. The undulations of the weathered rock means that the bike requires a firm hold and the rider's concentration - fun stuff. Check out this link:
From here we moved on to Billyacatting Hill, Baladjie Rock & Sanford Rocks. A couple of videos have been uploded to You Tube (follow the link above and the other videos we have on offer).
I could go on forever - bottom line - send me an email and I will map out a route for you. A long weekend is best but if you dont mind the driving (its about a 750km round trip from Perth) you could do it over a weekend by leaving Friday arvo and stumping up at Yorkrakine Rock late (like we did).
