The Granite Belt has it all – even a pyramid! The Ballandean Pyramid sits on private property and belongs to a local vineyard (Henty Estate), so it is not permitted to approach the pyramid. However, it can be viewed from the roadside and it is often the backdrop for some fabulous selfies!
Built in 2006, the Ballandean Pyramid is built from blocks of local granite. It stands 17.5 metres tall and its base is 30 metres square. It contains 7,500 tonnes of granite and took 8 months to complete. The idea for the Ballandean Pyramid’s creation was as a way of dealing with the surplus rock on the property and was a bit of a joke that grew… in true county style.
