Organ Pipes NP, VIC

Known best for its unique geological rock formations, Organ Pipes National Park is home to a wide variety of plants and animals across three distinct communities, found along the river, on the slopes and on the top of the escarpment. Over 150 years of grazing and farming had left the land barren and eroded before the park was protected in 1972. Since then revegetation efforts have enabled the return of many native species.

Starting at the Visitor Centre, a short but steep walking track leads down the escarpment towards Jackson’s Creek. Follow this path and turn left at the first fork and then left again, following the creek line until you reach the Tessellated Pavement. The ClimateWatch trail ends here, and walkers may choose to return via the same route or take the longer loop to have a look at the beautiful geological formations of the Organ Pipes. Don't forget to keep your eye out for more ClimateWatch species along the way. The 800 m trail takes approximately 20 minutes.
