From Organ Pipes parking and picnic area, Keilor North, this walk heads east along Organ Pipes Track. This lovely, mostly shaded walk leads along Jacksons Creek past 3 lookouts and another picnic area. Read the informational signage along the way to learn more about the national park before coming to the jaw-droping Organ Pipes rock formation. The return walk is wheelchair friendly. If you want to make it a circuit walk, continue along the track from Tesselated Pavement steeply uphill. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
