Murphys Haystacks A1

An outcrop of unique pink granite boulders,

Murphys Haystacks is a great photo

opportunity. It’s located 40km south east of

Streaky Bay on the road to Calca and Point

Labatt. Visitors can take the walkway between

the two groups of rock outcrops and read the

interpretive signage. These ancient wind worn

granite inselbergs, huge rocks purported

to be over 1500 million years old, occur in

numerous places on the Peninsula. Entry is by

donation at the gate.

A purpose built viewing platform 50 metres

above the seal colony allows you to closely

observe the only permanent colony of

Australian sea lions (Neophoca cinera) on

the Australian mainland, with the aid of

interpretative signage. Binoculars and /

or a telephoto lens are recommended for

enhanced viewing.
