Mount Carnarvon Walking Track

Mount Carnarvon walking track connects Echo Point picnic area with an isolated hilltop lookout, offering terrific birdwatching and a place to have lunch afterwards.

The view from Echo Point picnic area is memorable in its own right, but for something even more secluded, follow a track south from the picnic area as it descends through an interesting cliff line down some stairs. These are carved directly out of the old rock. The track then climbs gently to the isolated hilltop of Mount Carnarvon, with its own unique lookout, offering yet another vantage point over Morton National Park.

This is a terrific spot for birdwatching, given the park’s staggering variety of native species: birds of prey circle the lookout during the day, and owls frequent the area at night. It’s also a great place to appreciate the heathland flowers during spring, with black drumsticks, yellow banksia, purple geebungs and prickly hakeas sighted in the area.

After taking your fill of the scenic vista, retrace your steps up the sandstone escarpment, then consider breaking for a picnic lunch at Echo Point.
