Granite outcrops such as Diamond Rock were an important water source for Aboriginal people and directly influenced John Holland's choice of route in 1893.
Thickets of rock sheoak, jam wattle, sandalwood and quondong surround the rock, while lichens and mosses adorn the cracked rock sheets. Animals drink at the waterholes on the rock and tadpoles and aquatic invertebrates appear in the larger pools after rains. As you walk over the rock, watch the quick moving dragon lizards dash for cover beneath granite sheets!
