Information

Pildappa Rock is an impressive granite outcrop well worth a visit. Located a convenient 15 kilometres off the National Highway One, access to the attraction is through the town of Minnipa.

Visit the rock and you will find wave formations that rival the famous 'Wave Rock' in Western Australia.

With a shelter, picnic, toilet and barbecue facilities available they make the attraction a popular picnic spot among locals and visitors. A walking/drive trail circumnavigates the rock.

Climb the rock and you will find superb views of the Gawler Ranges and the Blue Sturts. 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.

This site will be closed to camping from Jan 26th 2024. Once works are completed, it will become a day use area only. However, another camping spot nearby is being planned by a local farmer, with easy access to the rock, toilets and walking paths.
