Four Brothers Rocks

Four Brothers Rocks is a group of large granite tors that are located in the western end of Bunyip State Park.

Getting to the car park at the top end of Burgess Rd off Link Rd is easy but once in the car park there is no signage pointing to which of three tracks takes you to the site. Bit confusing without a more detailed map, but some exploration finally had me heading the right direction.

Yes, the rocks are large but the promised views were a little underwhelming with trees and undergrowth not being reduced for some time I suspect.

The walk in was easy. Some tree ferns and false bracken engaged me for a short while.

The rocks themselves are worth seeing (and if you position your camera properly you can avoid the worst of the graffiti😠.)

Erosion by exfoliation to give the formations their dome shapes is clearly evident.

Several faces were covered in a red lichen which added a dimension to some of the photos.

Birds? Well I did catch up with a Banksia Wren 😊!
