The Organ Pipes Track is a 2 mi looped trail that starts and ends at the Visitor Information Centre in the Organ Pipes National Park, Victoria.
The trail is graded as Medium due to its fairly steep incline and is usually completed in under an hour. For information on how we grade trails, please click here, and caution is advised on trail times as this depends on multiple variables. For more info, click here.
This short but steep walking trail starts atop an old volcano before heading into the valley on mainly paved and gravel track, with some woodland path, to take in the fascinating formations; the unique Rosette Rock, Tesselated Pavement and Organ Pipes rock formations were formed a million years ago by molten lava after a circuit, visitors often stay to enjoy a picnic beside Jackson’s Creek, a particular favourite for little explorers, with its cool, shaded shoreline and fresh waters.
Family friendly, it’s the perfect picnic spot for all and the trail is a particular highlight with lots of wildlife to see including bats, echidnas, kangaroos, platypus and wallabies, but the steep gravel and paved track is not recommended for pushchairs or wheelchairs (only with assistance if necessary). There are also some shaded picnic benches, toilets and accessible toilets at the Organ Pipes National Park information centre and car park.
It's important to note that the steep trail can become slippery when wet, and dogs are not allowed in the national park.
