Kaputar National Park

Sawn Rocks - Mount Kaputa National Park
The magnificent Sawn Rocks are one of Australia’s best examples of a rock formation called ‘organ-piping’ – because they look like a wall of giant organ pipes. They are a fascinating reminder of Mount Kaputar’s volcanic past.
Getting there: Sawn Rocks walking track is in the Sawn Rocks area of Mount Kaputar National Park. To get there travel north from Narrabri along the Newell Highway for 3km. Turn right into Bingara Road. After about 35km, you'll see the sign to Sawn Rocks.More Info: Sawn Rocks Leaflet

The Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA), at the Narrabri Observatory, is an array of six 22 metre dish antennas used for radio astronomy. It is located about 25 kilometres west of the town of Narrabri (on sealed road) in rural New South Wales (about 500 kilometres north-west of Sydney), and operated by the Australia Telescope National Facility, a division of CSIRO. Visits by the general public are always welcome!
