Yilliminning Rock is 19 kms east of Narrogin. It’s peaceful and a great spot to watch out for local lizards and, in a good wildflower season, orchids abound!

The George Brockway Tree stands tall and proud at Yilliminning Rock. It’s an incredible Salmon Gum named after George Brockway, one of WA’s foremost forest conservationists in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

If you get the angle right, the tree makes a unique subject for an image at night showing the dazzling stars through the high canopy. From Yilliminning Rock there are sweeping views all around.
