A short but steep walk to Organ Pipes gives you a spectacular view of the park, Jacksons Creek and of course, the Organ Pipes rock formation. Suitable for children and popular with families.
Public toilets are at the information centre. There are a couple of picnic spots under shady trees.
We picked the shortest route for this trip as we had a toddler in tow and the sun was getting warm by mid-morning.
The view of the surrounding valley is pretty spectacular from here. The hill is steep so it's a great workout if you need to get your heart rate up.
Since the park was declared in 1972, a great deal of work has been done to restore the indigenous vegetation to the area. (See Parknotes)
A lovely shady spot for lunch or a cuppa.
More than a million years ago, lava from nearby volcanoes flowed into the area, cooled, hardened, then cracked, forming the columns we see today. Photo: Deb Wilson (Victoria Walks Facebook follower).
On our visit, we met at least 10 other children, which confirms that the walk is suitable for young ones too.
The shores of the creek is a good spot for young explorers.
The creek is cool and shady if you need a break from the heat of the sun.
