Joseph Young Drive, Harcourt North VIC 3453

Features

Dog Rocks, a stunning granite outcrop within the Mount Alexander Regional Park, offers spectacular hillside views over Harcourt and the countryside beyond. Countless enormous boulders stand out strikingly from the western slopes of Mount Alexander, just a short walk from the parking area. Spend some time exploring and appreciate the beautiful views from many different vantage points.

There is a gravel parking area alongside Joseph Young Drive then a very short walking track takes you up the hill to Dog Rocks (zoom in on the map above for exact location).

These rocks were given their name in 1846 by Lockhart Morton, manager of Sutton Grange station, after he observed many dingos frequenting the area.

Be wary of uneven ground and steep drops, supervise children at all times. 

You can also walk to Shepherds Flat Lookout (1.9 km) and Mount Alexander (2.7 km) from here. 

Dog Rocks is very similar to Rock of Ages in Maldon, Melville Caves in Brenanah, and Sisters Rocks in Stawell.
