Since time immemorial, the Helena Aurora Range has been part of the country of the Kalamaia Kapurn people who call it Bungalbin. Helena and Aurora Range is the tallest and largest Banded Ironstone Formation (BIF) Range in the Coolgardie Bioregion (up to 704 m above sea level) and is considered to have the highest conservation value among the BIF ranges in the central Yilgarn. Recently Hon Stephen Dawson (Minister for Environment) rejected the mining proposal and agreed to its protection within an ‘A’ Class reserve.
Apart from its large banded ironstone rocks, it is characterised by stretches of eucalypt woodland and tall, inland whitegums. From the top of the range, visitors are treated to unspoilt views of the Great Western Woodlands as far as the eye can see. Join photographer Rob Neave with a visual treat of this incredible part of our vast backyard.
