The Pillar Valley takes in an area between the Grafton/Wooli turn off, through to the Yuraygir National Park boundary. It is an area which many passers-by comment on as being “that beautiful picturesque valley featuring farmland and scenic escarpment” as they travel through to the nearby beach villages of Minnie Water, Diggers Camp and Wooli.
The Valley is named after a large sandstone rock formation known as Pillar Rock which stands high on an escarpment forming a backdrop to native wetlands, forest, farmland and Amos Creek. The Rock once pointed out can’t be missed as you travel through the area. It belongs to a privately owned property, but the owner believes he is the caretaker and ensures that it is maintained for all to enjoy from afar.
An abundance of natural groundwater is another unique feature to the area where there are many billabongs and springs which attract a variety of birdlife and wildlife. When travelling through Pillar Valley, motorists are advised to keep a cautious eye out for kangaroos, wallabies and emu’s as they have not yet gained any road sense.
Pillar Valley once discovered, remains in visitors hearts and minds, with many returning after years of travelling through to settle in the area or invest in a small piece of its wonderful natural beauty.
