The Conic Rocks

From Tallangatta take the Murray Valley Hwy north until you reach the Trestle bridge/Mt Lawson sign. If you reach the Koetong pub you have gone too far.

The last time I visited this site I had two girls from China staying with me. They were English Literature students in Australia for a month during their uni vacation. They had three wishes -see a kangaroo, a koala and the stars.

As we walked to the trestle bridge the first of their wishes sat up and watched us for a few minutes before bounding away.

After the walk to the old trestle bridge its back to the car and head off into the bush on the Mt Lawson Road/Firebrace track, continue straight on until  you come to a picnic table and parking area.

Conic rock formation. These rocks are reached by a walk up a medium steep climb of  approximately 1/2 hour through the bush on a defined path. When you come to the first large rock formation you are not at the top so keep walking. The rocks are quite impressive with lots of overhangs. Explore around, climbing though and under these amazing rocks. You need to do a bit of bush bashing to get around them.  When you reach them you are overlooking the Koetong Creek Valley. A creek well worth a visit. For the adventurous there are Aboriginal drawing further down into the valley – you will have to search as their is no path.
