– a unique pink inselberg located 15 kilometres northeast of Minnipa. Situated in South Australia’s granite country, locals proudly proclaim Pildappa to rival the more famous “Wave Rock” – a sandstone wave form located in Hyden Western Australia.
- limestone caves – a large doline – a collapsed cave, along with 2 more caves typical of the Nullarbor’s Karst topography. Caves 2 and 3 are the most interesting with Hawks and Swallows using the caves as nesting sites. Temperatures inside the caves can be over 10 degrees cooler than above ground temperatures – especially during summer.
Eyre Bird Observatory & Telegraph Station - Immerse yourself in a classic chapter of Australian history in a peaceful and strikingly scenic outpost.
The Eyre Bird Observatory was established as Australia's first bird observatory by Birds Australia (formerly the RAOU) in 1977.The observatory is a lovely old stone building nestled between leafy woodlands and striking white dunes within walking distance of the beach. It was built in 1897 to serve as a telegraph station on the Intercolonial Telegraph Line (South Australia to Western Australia). It is located near the site where explorer Edward John Eyre found water during his overland journey from Adelaide to Albany in 1841. The station was deserted in 1930 and remained so until its restoration in 1977.The building incorporates a fine natural history library and a small museum, which provides some history of the Eyre Telegraph Station and the telegraph line. It also contains information and displays on the coastal environments, including past activities such as whaling. Ruins of other telegraph stations built on the Intercolonial Telegraph Line are located to the east at Eucla (near Eucla National Park) and to the west at Israelite Bay, which lies within Nuytsland Nature Reserve.
