Northbrook Mountain via Lawton Road
4 h, 6 h 30 min to 2 days
2 h 30 min to 3 h 45 min
Starting from Mt. Glorious Road, Mount Glorious, this return walk takes you to the summit of Northbrook mountain via the Lawton Road(fire trail), visiting Northbrook Mt. Bush Camp along the way. You may huff and puff along the track and maybe think that this was a waste of time and energy, but those thoughts will leave their place to pure satisfaction as you reach the lookout at the top. Expect to see literally hundreds of kilometres over the gorgeous set of mountains covered with dense forests. As you might’ve guessed, this spot makes for some incredible sunsets as well. The campsite near the summit is also a delight, a place where you can peacefully spend the night. You’ll be able to see plenty of wildlife including some interesting bird species such as the eastern whipbird and pitch-black drongos. The birdsong throughout the track only implies there are much more species out there for you to see. If you choose to stay at the campsite, make sure you prepare accordingly as the site doesn’t have toilets or water. Keep an eye out for snakes. 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.
