Rockbank: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Organ Pipes National Park


The Organ Pipes, a set of basalt columns formed by the cooling and cracking of molten lava, are the most well known feature of the park. Enjoy a picnic, a walk and the spring wattle blossom.

The park is an excellent place for picnics, walks, bird observing and photography. Stand on the viewing platform - the basalt Keilor Plains all around you are part of one of the world's largest lava flows.

Walk down the path to view the 'organ pipes' - a set of basalt columns formed by lava. Look for yellowish sandstones and mudstones across the creek 200 metres downstream from the 'organ pipes'.

Long Forest Nature Conservation Reserve


This park provides the opportunity to view Mallee vegetation in close proximity to Melbourne. Plants typical of arid landscapes and small creek escarpments make the reserve a fantastic retreat for bushwalkers and birdwatchers.

Heritage
Today, mallee vegetation is widespread in Victoria's dry north-west, but some thousands of years ago, during a warmer and drier period, it extended much farther south. Subsequent climatic changes favoured other vegetation such as box and stringybark eucalypts and the Long Forest is now the only naturally occurring mallee south of the Great Dividing Range.
