“The Organ Pipes National Park is located at the eastern-most edge of one of the world’s largest ancient volcanic lava flows, stretching 350 kilometres from the edge of Melbourne to the western border of Victoria.
Towering above charming Jacksons Creek, the impressive basalt columns that resemble organ pipes were formed about a million years ago when huge quantities of molten lava were ejected from volcanoes near what is now Sunbury and flowed over the Keilor Plains.”
Organ Pipes National Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape in the traditional Country of the Wurundjeri People. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Wurundjeri Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.
"There are no designated disabled parking spaces. However, at the very end of the carpark, nearest to the picnic area, the two end spots provide protected parking for those requiring side access to their vehicles.
The best access to the picnic area, toilets and visitor information centre from the north side of the carpark is via the road, as there is a spoon drain through the paved access path through the median strip. There is easier access to the facilities from the south side of the carpark."
"Assistance dogs are welcome in Parks Victoria parks and reserves. Entry requirements apply for parks and reserves that are usually dog prohibited, such as national parks."General accessibility features:
- Assistance animal welcome
- Accessible toilet(s)
"The toilet block has a single unisex accessible cubicle between the male and female facilities. It has an inward swinging door with light pressure required to open it. It is fitted with a rotating internal lock.
The cubicle is large, with ample turning room and space for a wheelchair beside the toilet. The seat height is 420 millimeters and there are side and rear grab bars. A bin is available within the cubicle. The basin is accessible and there is no hot water running through any of the exposed pipes. The tap is on the back wall and is the rotating type. It is difficult to operate without finger dexterity."
"There is a small picnic area located at the end of the carpark. The surface is very loose and may pose some difficulties for visitors using wheelchairs or walkers with small casters. A natural hard earth path leads to a double table at the back of the area, that can be accessed from the lookout walk. The overhang at the end of the each table is approximately 300 millimetres."
"The lookout walk can be accessed through a gateway at the rear of the visitors centre. No gate is fitted, and the entrance is over a metre wide. The path leads to two vantage points that look out over the Keilor Plains and the deep valley cut by Jacksons creek. The path is level around the ridge top and is hard packed fine gravel.
The total distance is 800 metres and comes out onto the main Organ Pipes access path just behind the picnic area."
Organ Pipes Track
"Access to the Organ Pipes, Rosette Rock and the Tessellated Pavement is via a sealed but very steep path. Just below the picnic area the slope reaches a gradient of 1 in 4. This walk should only be undertaken by fit, surefooted visitors."Other accessibility information:
