Go walking through tall eucalypts and alongside huge granite boulders. Stop to take in the view as you look across the Monaro Plains towards the Snowy Mountains. Ascend through lush old growth forest, passing by stands of White Ash forest and Brown Barrel before approaching the summit where you’ll find a remarkable scattering of giant, granite tors.

It’s the ideal place to relax and enjoy picnicking with a view, especially at sunset. On a clear day the views are spectacular. Yet it is equally striking and timeless on days when onshore winds blow in orographic mists and the landscape is shrouded in a thick cloud.
