The Granites are located just 9 kilometres north of Mount Magnet on the Great Northern Highway.

The local Badimia view the area as one of cultural significance and it contains examples of Aboriginal art that has been dated at 9000 years old.

The large area is scattered with rock formations and caves and the escarpment reaches about 15 metres in height.

The rock formations are made up of soft white granite with a hard red brown iron cemented capping.

There are ceremonial and burial sites in this area as well as a gnamma hole (native well).

It is a popular picnic site and it is worth taking the time to walk and look for native plants and animals.

The rock formations make for spectacular photographs and are best seen at sunrise ans sunset.
