Very challenging
Starting from the Wineglass Bay Car park on Malunna Road, Freycinet, this walk leads to the summit of Mount Amos via the Mount Amos Track. The walk to the summit is short, steep, challenging and extremely rewarding. It starts of easy, but soon becomes steeper as you need to climb large rocks to the top. The effort is worth it as the views from the top cannot be matched. 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.
