Description

The Wheatbelt Way Site 14 Beringbooding Rock has the largest rock water catchment tank in Australia, built in 1937 and holding two and a quarter million gallons. Sustenance Labour was used to build the tank at a cost of 10,000 pounds. Beringbooding also has an amazing balance boulder, a huge gnamma hole, and some of the Kalamaia tribes paintings of hands in a cave at the rear of the rock. Two early pioneer wells are also located nearby. Spring finds the pink ti-tree, heart-shaped leaf eucalyptus melaleuca, acacia, grevillea, hakea, calothamnus, eromophilia, cassia, quandongs, sandalwood and the native orchids flowering. Later into October and November the Kunzia Pulchella and one-sided bottlebrush flower profusely and many birds inhabit the area. Well worth a visit by anybody in the area. Beringbooding Rock has great picnic and free camping facilities with easy caravan access, picnic tables, BBQs, a toilet, interpretative signage and a marked walk trail.

Found this rock and surrounds very interesting. The rock water catchment scheme is amazing to see. It is work the walk to find the Kangaroo Soak and it is an easy climb to the top for the 360 degree views.

Had it to ourselves - restocked the spotlessly clean toilet with toilet paper - suggest you be sure to have some. Neat and tidy, very saw no rubbish which is great. Interesting story and quite a bit to see - why and how the tank was made and the Giant funnel the rock became to feed it is old school. Worth a visit we say. It's a 1.5k walk but does require a bit of agility.
