Pildappa is a spectacular sight – a rock with the highest and longest wave formations on the Eyre Peninsula, rivalling those of Western Australia’s famous Wave Rock.
The highest waves are near picnic areas – one on the northern side and one on the southern side of the rock. Long waves with platforms occur along the south eastern end of the rock.
Pildappa offers beautiful views of the surrounding farming land, and an unbroken view of the Gawler Ranges and Blue Sturts to the north.
Pildappa is also known for its deep gnamma holes, which ensure a virtually permanent water supply and like many granite outcrops around Australia it has an elaborate gutter system surrounding the base of the rock.
