Baileys Rocks

Baileys Rocks, in the Dergholm State Park, are a natural formation of ancient giant green granite boulders 38 km south of town on the road to Dergholm.

First surveyed and set aside as a reserve in 1875, they are named after John Bailey who established a 1200-acre sheep property on a hill above the rocks in 1888. Families enjoyed picnics here and danced at the Bailey home. A mining company began quarrying the granite from the site in 1970 but a local campaign ended the destruction, though not before some damage had been done.

Camp, have a picnic or take the short, 330 metre loop walking track to view and explore the large 500 million year old granite rocks. You can also take a walk along the Rocky Creek walking track that is five kilometres return.

Toilets, water, fire pits and picnic tables are provided. Dogs are permitted on a lead at Baileys Rocks picnic area but not any other part of the park.

Turn onto Baileys Rocks Road from Casterton - Naracoorte Road.
Note: boil the tank water before drinking.
