Sawn Rocks is a 40 metre basalt rock cliff face featuring ‘perpendicular-octagonal shaped rocks, resembling a giant series of organ pipes’ & looks as though it was created by some architectural firm rather than nature.

Best to see this geological feature in the afternoon with the sun on it. Not as extensive as those in the Gawler Ranges in SA but still worth the short drive on good road.

Explain to me how that happened. Absolutely fantastic to see. Spent most of the day exploring around this area. Recommend the glacial formations down the road

Just a short drive from town and a 700 meter bush walk will take you to these unique rocks which have an unusual formation. You can also go down to the creek bed by a series of steps to see the base of the rocks....More

I walked up to the Rock with friends to watch the sunrise. The facilities of the carpark, toilets, bbq and the track are wonderfull. It’s great to see it well taken care of.

Make sure you get there before 4pm to avoid kangaroos crossing the road at dusk. After a long drive it is good to have a break and go for a pleasant walk. Plenty of wildlife along the path to the rocks. Keep your eyes open...More

We happened to be going out in the Bingara Road but even if we weren’t this place is worth going out of your way to visit. The car park is just near the road. There are picnic tables and a bush toilet. It is a...More

These rocks are phenomenal! An easy short walk, with good disabled access and clean facilities. Take your water as very dry at the moment. But would be just beautiful with water in the creek. We did the walk and then had some lunch looking over...More

If you're driving past along the Killarney Gap Road, it's definitely worth the short detour to have a look. The walk takes less than 10 minutes to get to the rock face (ignore the sign at the front saying it's a 60 minute round trip)...More
