Isn’t it amazing what good rain can do? A year ago we showed you photos of Rocky Creek Glacial Area – a freedom camp south west of beautiful Bingara, New South Wales, literally metres off the road to Narrabri, New South Wales.
Check out the video we took when we were there, it looks different to this gushing view snapped by Nicole Piper.
You can see how you can swim in a series of natural spas! Note: there is no ice or glaciers now, but the geological wonder is a good place to cool off.
Just 28 km down the Killarney Gap Road, into the Narrabri Shire is Sawn Rocks, in Mt Kaputar National Park. These very unusual rock formations which look like a wall of pipes, called “organ piping”.
They are perfectly aligned and the pentagonal basalt crystals resulted from slow, even cooling of the molten rock. Forty metres high of evidence of a volcanic past.
Sawn Rocks has a 750m walking track and platform, picnic area with shelters, BBQs and toilet. Camping areas are located at Bark Hut and Dawsons Spring, in the middle of the National Park. In the far north of the park, you can also visit the spectacular Waa Gorge.
