Elliston Eyre Peninsula

Murphys Haystacks A1 An outcrop of unique pink granite boulders, Murphys Haystacks is a great photo opportunity. It’s located 40km south east of Streaky Bay on the road to Calca and Point Labatt. Visitors can take the walkway between the two groups of rock outcrops and read the interpretive signage. These ancient wind worn granite inselbergs, huge rocks purported to be over 1500 million years old, occur in numerous places on the Peninsula. Entry is by donation at the gate. Chain of Bays A1 Sceale Bay, Searcy Bay, Baird Bay, Corvisart Bay.

Binoculars and / or a telephoto lens are recommended for enhanced viewing. Mount Wedge C4 Mount Wedge is made of a very rare form of granite with only one other mountain in the world being of the same formation. Cereal crops and sheep are the mainstay of this area.
