Peaks-lookouts in Namadgi National Park

Canberra is near Namadgi National Park, which features some of the tallest mountains in Australia and wilderness at its core. The scenery is outstanding and you are sure to spot wildlife.

Peaks in Namadgi can be visited as a Half-day or Full-day tour, which includes a 50-60 minute drive from Canberra. Consult with us about which sections of the park you’ll enjoy most.

Booroomba Rocks

Highlights

  • Views to wilderness from a cliff top in a low mountain range
  • Frequent encounters with Grey Kangaroos and Red-necked Wallabies
  • Large rock platform.

Track – From a parking lot in the forest there is a short (20-30 minute) but steep climb up a path through nice subalpine forest to a cliff top. As an option, we can then walk through bushland to a rock platform behind the cliffs (two hours return). Long pants are required for the walk to the rock platform, which passes through patches of thick scrub and regrowth following fire.

Mt. Coree/Mt. Aggie

 

Highlights

  • Great views of the Brindabella Mountains, wilderness and surrounding lowlands
  • Frequent encounters with Red-necked and Swamp Wallabies
  • Excellent tall montane forests in this area.

Track – There is vehicle (thus wheelchair) access to Mt Corree. Mt Aggie requires a short (less than 1 km, 30 minute) climb with a moderate grade in one spot. Nearby is Mt. Franklin, which is a a higher peak requiring a longer walk to the top.
