Berriwillock

The Golden Crown Hotel, a general store, cafe and a bowling club keep the small, north-western Victorian town of Berriwillock on the map. But the portents aren't all that encouraging about the future of this dry country village whose children now have to be bussed 60km every day to and from Sea Lake since the closure of the local school.

Tyrell Downs outside Sea Lake was the property on which the redoubtable E.H. Lascelles introduced innovative farming methods which capped his long campaign to convince the authorities that the long despised Mallee could be converted into productive, agricultural land.

Green Lake, 20km out of Berriwillock, provides water sport and recreation, but only in the good seasons because the lake has to be filled by water from the distant Grampians catchment area.

The largest regional centre of Swan Hill on the Murray River is an hour's drive to the north-east.

Berriwillock: 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'.
