Organ Pipes National Park (Keilor North)




The Organ Pipes, a set of basalt columns formed by the cooling and cracking of molten lava, are the parks best known feature. Visitors can enjoy the fantastic range of picnicking, walking, bird watching and photography opportunities available.

Review:


Three short walks are possible within the area covering one of more of the Organ Pipes wall, Rosette Rock and the Tessellated Pavement. The shortest walk to the Organ Pipes is only about 700m via a fairly steep paved road and the longest route is about 1.3 km.

It is handy to come with a dictionary but to save you the trouble a Rosette is "An ornament or badge made of ribbon or silk that is pleated or gathered to resemble a rose" and Tessellated pavement is "a geologic feature where the rock has fractured into polygonal blocks that resemble tiles, or tessellations".

Apart from the steep initial descent from the Visitor Centre, most of the walking is flat and there is a strategically placed seat part way up the hill for a rest on the return journey. Water is only available at the Visitor Centre area. Be warned that the park closes early (around 4:30 pm)
