Information

The Lost City is a natural formation, formed by thousands of years of wind and rain erosion whose walls, narrow passages and domes give the impression that they were man made. These complex freestanding sandstone block and pillar formations suggest the ruins of a long forgotten civilization of an amazing race. Spread over an area the size of a small town, they look like the ruins of a city with a maze of narrow alleys.
The sandstone rock is estimated to be over 500 million years old. Some have said that its strange sandstone formations look like buildings, castles, animals, statues, people and aborigines playing their didgeridoo. Accessible via an 8 to 10 km four-wheel-drive track that becomes difficult as you approach the formation.
