Information

Pigeon Rocks were named by explorer Ernest Giles during his Fourth Expedition in 1875 enroute to Perth via the Great Victoria Desert. He named it as, in his words, "We obtained a good many bronze-winged pigeons here." He also reported a number of crows and hawks. At this spot Giles fired a single shot into the air to warn the many natives in the area not to attack his party as some did a few days earlier at Ularring. He stayed at the rocks, where there was plenty of water from 21 to 24 October 1875.

Pigeon Rocks are accessible west of the Bullfinch Evanston Road.
