Mount Pilot

Mount Pilot is a granite batholith, surrounded on its lower flanks by massive granite tors and giant boulders. Some of these boulders have cracked and fallen to create caves and galleries, which offered permanent shelter to the first Australians. Two separate rock art paintings of Thylacines, each probably more than 2000 years old, speak of the area’s ancient spiritual significance. The surrounding remnant box ironbark and cypress pine forests shelter dozens of rare and threatened species, from barking owls and regent honeyeaters, to squirrel gliders and brush-tailedphascogales (tuan). On the summit, rock pools filled with rain water reflect the sky, while the view across the Murray River plains stretches as far as the eye can see. – Jacqui Durrant
