Located 17kms west of Wubin, this is a spot for orchids in season. A large flat granite outcrop with a Gnamma hole used by nomadic aborigines passing through the area and referred to then as “Gnookadunging”. The explorer John Forrest referenced the same water source when he passed through the area in 1869. Remnants of the old cricket pitch can still be seen in the reserve.  During spring the reserve generally has a carpet like display of predominantly yellow everlastings and this coupled with the many varieties of orchids and flowering shrubs make it another popular spot to go wildflower hunting. Walking eastwards towards the water hole, the track around the edge of the rock is bordered by many pincushion (borya) plants, amongst which you will generally find orchids growing in season.
