Castle Rock walk and Lookout

Natural Attractions

This is the prominent rock formation located about two kilometre to the east of Hawker. As can be seen in the photos of this listing, late afternoon light provides an excellent photo and it looks like a castle hence the name which it has been known locally by for decades. The access to Castle Rock is via the original road to Wilpena Pound, travel out of Hawker for about 1km along the Wilpena road and turn right on to the unsealed road. Proceed on the dirt road to the top of the hill. The entrance is through the gate in the fence and follow the walking track which leads towards Castle Rock. A great place to take in the view and also for a photo.
