An easy addition to a day's trek along the Great North Walk SPUR UP MT WARRAWOLONG Although called a 'Mount', it could only be thought a mountain in the uniquely low-lying continent of Australia where even our highest peak, Mount Kosciusko, is only a very modest 2,228 metres (7,310 feet). And, the highest point on The Great North Walk, Mt Warrawolong is much lower than this, squatting, rather than towering, only 641 metres (2,100 feet) above mean sea-level. The short sidetrack to the top commands a glorious view of the surrounding forest and countryside

Parked up the road as the nearby bridge on the northern side has collapsed. Can Be reached from the West/South side. The view from the top is worth the climb. Took us about 2 hours to climb up.
