Starting from Sunset Drive, Norman Gardens, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Archer and back via the Zamia Walk Track, crossing Moores Creek multiple times along the way. Expect a peaceful journey along the creek for most of the walk, then a demanding incline to the summit that rewards you with panoramic views over the land. The Berserker Range and the volcanic necks around look great from the top. You can head to the Grasstree Lookout and get more southerly views if you have the time. The small branches of the creek may form cute little waterfalls after some rain as well. Keep in mind that you can make this a one-way hike if you arrange transport to the Mt Archer summit. The track might be overgrown in parts, and you can expect to get your feet wet in the creek crossings. 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.
