60 million years in the making – just for your enjoyment
The large hummocky rock formations that look a lot like Elephants were created after fossil-rich limestone deposited millions of years ago eroded, leaving behind an incredible boulder-field which towers above your head.
The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail runs right past the rocks, so make sure you give yourself an extra half an hour to see the boulders up close.
There is a parking bay opposite Elephant Rocks.
The rocks are on private land so visitors are asked to be respectful of all signage and roaming stock. Access is via a short 2-3 minute walk.
