Australia So Much to See
The South Australian Eyre Peninsula has a number of granite rocks; most in the vicinity of Minnipa and Wudinna. Wave faces
are not unique to Western Australian rocks.

The area around Minnipa and Wudinna boasts some impressive rocks.
Polda rock has been used as a
water catchment and a low wall directs run off into a channel and into three large underground tanks. Rocks in the distance
are Little Mount Wudinna and Mount Wudinna.
In South Australia, locals claim that Mount Wudinna is the second largest monolith after
Uluru, but several other states also make this claim about their rocks. It is certainly known as the largest exposed granite
monolith in South Australia.
After climbing several of surrounding monoliths, it was the middle of the day and rather
hot, so climbing Mount Wudinna was postponed until the following year.
