Lindsay Rock Tops

This is a relatively easy walking track with no steep sections. You'll walk through snowgum woodland to an open rocky lava flow area with magnificent views to the south and east.

This is more like a 'moonscape' with the harsh southerly weather leaving a baron and low scrub environment.

Mt Kaputar

Millions of years in the making, it’s definitely worth packing your camera to capture the beauty of the park from a bird’s eye view. Walk to the summit of Mount Kaputar at sunrise or sunset, and watch the colours flood across the landscape and the stunning 360° views of the dramatic cliff and rock formations from the lookout.

Sawn Rocks

The wall of 40m high 'organ-piping' looks like something out of a cathedral. Sawn Rocks is a towering wall of pentagonal basalt pipes. An iconic reminder of Kaputar’s volcanic past, this rock formation is located in the northern section of Mt Kaputar National Park. This phenomenon is the result of slow and even cooling of molten rock, enabling individual crystals within the rock to align perfectly with each other.
