Easy at first but the last mile is rock climbing

One of my favourite hikes.

Spectacular walk. Relentless climb up to Mt Eliza, but brilliant alpine moor walking on top. Some serious rock hopping as you approach the summit block with a non technical climb with some exposure.

I have also done it as part of the Mt Anne circuit, possibly the best high alpine walk in Australia

We walked from the bus stop in Churchill Av. It is steep climbing up through the gully, but out on the ridge is open easy walking.
It is a nice selection of native bushland so close to a capital city.
Enjoy a coffee at the Old Signal Station at the top, or there are free BBQs just near the gate.
