The Lost City is a spectacular group of Organ Pipe sandstone formations in the Caranbirini Conservation Reserve. There is plenty of room for large rigs inside the parking area and it is easy to turn around.
Caranbirini Conservation Reserve is well worth the visit and only a few hundred metres off the highway. If you are fit and have the time, take yourself on the 5km walking track which traverses a variety of landscapes ending at the Lost City. But if this is too long for you there are easy walks from a few hundred metres upwards. The Lost City is just a short distance off to the right from the entrance.
