The most impressive reminder of Kaputar’s volcanic past is this 40m high basalt rock formation. Resembling a wall of organ pipes, Sawn Rocks is a result of slow and even cooling of molten rock, causing individual crystals within the rock to align perfectly and create the stunning natural pillars we see today. The rocks are best photographed after midday when they are in direct sunlight.
Sawn Rocks is easily accessed via a 750m raised walking track that begins at the car park. The track meanders through tall eucalypts, figs and ferns, and culminates in an observation platform. Stairs to the side provide access to the Bobbiwa Creek, and a shelter and barbecue area is available at the car park for those wanting to soak up the scenery a little longer.
