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'.
