Death Rock and Kanyaka Waterhole

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Natural Attractions

Death Rock and the adjacent Kanyaka Waterhole is located off the Quorn-Hawker Road, just past the Wirreanda Creek Bridge. The bridge is approximately 33 kilometres north of Quorn towards Hawker. The name Kanyaka may be derived from an Aboriginal word meaning “Place of Stone”.

Stretch your legs and take your camera on the short ten minute walk to the waterhole and the rock. Please note the track is unsealed and access for those with prams and wheelchairs is limited.

Death Rock is a large seven metre high quartzite rock beside the permanent spring fed Kanyaka Waterhole. It is an Aboriginal Historic Site.
