Mount Kaputar Summit Walk

Natural Attractions

The Mount Kaputar Summit walk winds its way up through towering eucalypts to emerge at a lookout with stunning 360 degree views of the dramatic mountain range. Starting from Dawsons Spring picnic area and following Dawsons Spring Nature trail, the walk to the summit will have your heart racing, but the spectacular view is well worth the journey.

Millions of years in the making, it’s definitely worth packing your camera to capture the beauty of the park from a bird’s eye view. To make the trip extra special, combine the walk with a stay at Dawsons Spring cabins and walk up before sunrise or sunset and watch the colours flood across the landscape. For an easier journey try driving to the summit and walking back down.
