The organ piped cliff face of Sawn Rocks in the Mount Kaputar National Park.
After a 33km detour off the main road (just north of Narrabri) you arrive at a carpark & then follow the easy track which ends at Sawn Rocks less than a kilometre away.
Sawn Rocks is a 40 metre basalt cliff face featuring perpendicular hexagonal shaped rocks, resembling a giant series of organ pipes.
Over thousands of years, some of the enormous slabs of rock have fallen to the bed of Bobiwaa Creek below, resembling the crumbled pillars of an ancient or roman temple.
Torrents of water over the ensuring years have eroded away the loose dirt exposing Sawn Rocks. Amongst the clear rock pools and the smooth rock bed of the creek at the base of the formation, that the rock is fractured into hexagonal shapes identical to the cliff face. It is believed that these plunge a further 60 metres into the earth below.
Geologists attribute the formation to the fast cooling of the upper layers of molton rock following the fiery upheaval caused by volcanic activity 21 million years ago.
Narrabri is in the north west of New South Wales, Australia.
