Information

Buntine Rocks, is a large granite outcrop, with spectacular 360 degree views from the top stretching over farmland to the west and bushland to the east.

Free camping is available at Buntine Rocks, and there is plenty of room, however there are no facilities, so be sure to bring your own water.

To get to Buntine Rocks, turn east out of Buntine (it is well signed), travel 1.2kms to the entrance to Buntine Rocks on your left hand side. Follow the track until you get to a large parking area where you will need to stop if you are towing a van or trailer.

This area is spectacular over the winter when the farm crops create a patchwork of green and gold.
During the wildflower season (early spring after winter rains) there is plenty to see if you take the time to look. In a good season you might see carpets of pink and white everlastings. There are also many varieties of orchids including donkey, cowslip, blue fairy, spider, ant & sun which can be found around the base of the rocks and alongside the track edges leading up to it.

If you visit just after heavy rains and are staying overnight, you may be deafened by the noise of frogs. There are five different species of frog which have been found in the adjacent Buntine Nature Reserve. There are well over 400 species (birds, reptiles, mammals and plants) that have been recorded within a 5km radius of the rocks. Some of these are among the most threatened species in Australia. Make sure to keep an eye out for the elusive Malleefowl.
