Historical information
There is no information with this item.
"The Pyramids", was named due to huge rocks that jut out from the hill, being shaped similarly to the Egyptian Pyramids.
" Where the Murrindal River winds between high limestone bluffs before disappearing into a mountainside and becoming an underground river, four miles north-east of Buchan, is the region known as The Pyramids. It is an area of limestone caverns and sink holes overshadowed by three rock stacks. Some of the caves are the last resting places of long dead Murrindal animals." ( from MBW Walk magazine 1970 - Melbourne Bushwalkers"
