Points of Interest

1. Choose your own adventure

We picked the shortest route for this trip as we had a toddler in tow and the sun was getting warm by mid-morning.

2. View from the top

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.

3. Extensive revegetation

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)

4. Picnic table and seats

A lovely shady spot for lunch or a cuppa.

5. The Organ Pipes

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).

6. Popular walk for families with younger children

On our visit, we met at least 10 other children, which confirms that the walk is suitable for young ones too.

7. Exploring Jacksons Creek

The shores of the creek is a good spot for young explorers.

8. View upstream

The creek is cool and shady if you need a break from the heat of the sun.
