Chambers Pillar is a natural sandstone formation used by our famous early explorers as a navigational point. You can still read their signatures and inscriptions carved into the rock. Sandstone laid down 350 million years ago, has over time been eroded away by wind and rain leaving 3 dramatic rock formations. Chambers Pillar itself rises 50 metres above the otherwise flat and barren landscape making a spectacular attraction.
Rainbow Valley - Marvel at an ancient landscape as you explore the spectacular Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve, the main feature of the Rainbow Valley area is the scenic sandstone bluffs and cliffs. These free standing cliffs form part of the James Range, and are particularly attractive in the early morning and late afternoon when the rainbow-like rock bands are highlighted.
