Moderate track
Starting From Mount Zero Picnic Area, Laharum, this return walk takes you to Mount Zero Peak and back. The walk is relatively short and offers stunning panoramic views of Mount Stapylton and the Wimmera Plains as it ascends. The Northern Tip of Mount Zero is comprised of gigantic rock formations that will leave you speechless. The flora is impressive and is suitable for observation for the enthusiast even in midsummer. The walk commences with a smooth dirt track, but the texture shifts into a mixture of rock formations. Therefore, you might want to wear grippy footwear and hiking shoes with supports. 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.
