5 h to 7 h 30 min

Starting near the Melrose Campground at the end of Joes Road, Melrose, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Remarkable via the Mount Remarkable Walking Track. The hike to Mount Remarkable starts from the main trailhead at the Monument, past the caravan park. The terrain varies from lush green carpet, scree slopes, low-lying bushland and expansive dry eucalypt forest. As you ascend the mountain, you are rewarded with impressive views of Willochra Plain and Spencer Gulf. However, on the summit there is no lookout, and dense vegetation obscures the view. The trail is long and slow, with a steady gradient winding around the side of the mountain. There are some challenging scree slopes, with loose rocky terrain. The trail has distance markers and clear signage, making it relatively easy to follow. 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.
