Mount Walker is approximately 8km south of Hughenden and boasts six spectacular lookouts scanning the district over 360o and stands 478m above sea level. Named by William Landsborough in 1862 after fellow explorer Frederick Walker, today Mount Walker has become a popular place at sunset and is a photographer’s delight.
This road has a 16% incline and is not recommended for large motorhomes, buses or vehicles towing. The first 1.7km from the main road is a dirt road connecting to a sealed road to go up the top of the hill. This runs for 600m until you hit the top and then back onto dirt again.
