Faraday, Victoria – Australia ‘Mount Alexander Regional Park – Dog Rocks’ Photographed by Karen Robinson NB. All images are copyright protected. Comments – Dog Rocks located just off Joseph Young Drive features huge conglomeration of ginormous picturesque granite rock outcrops. Native gum trees grow in a mangled fashion around these huge boulders; this with the late morning sunshine dappling its way through the bush helps make for interesting photographic opportunities. We spent some time at this location photographing and just enjoy the beautiful of the region. View through the bush could be seen looking out towards Harcourt. The reason for this area to be called Dog Rocks was because back in the nineteenth century, many dingos were seen around the rocks and manager Lockhart Morton of Sutton Grange Station in 1846 named the area Dog Rocks.
