Circuit

Walk
4 h 30 min to 6 h 30 min

Starting from the Gate 3 car park at the end of Richman Valley Road, Quorn, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Brown via the Heysen Trail and the Mount Brown-Olive Grove Trail. The walk takes you past Waukarie Falls to Mt Brown summit. Take some time at the top to soak in the view from the lookout tower and read some information boards about Robert Brown in whose name the tower was built. All junctions are clearly marked, and there are usually printed walk brochures in the metal box at the trailhead. The track is relatively easy for the first couple of kilometres through the valley, and then a relentless uphill trek begins. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as some sections of this hike involve scrambling over rocky surfaces, which may become slippery after rain. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
