North Brother Mountain

National Parks and Reserves

Situated in the Dooragan National Park, North Brother Mountain offers some of the most accessible, panoramic views on the east coast of Australia. The immediate view is over the magnificent Camden Haven Inlet with the Camden Haven River winding between Queens and Watson Taylors Lakes. Views extend to Crowdy Head in the south and as far as Mount Yarrahappini in the north.

The picnic facilities and open lawn area is the perfect place to relax and unwind while enjoying the view. Easy accessibility makes it a fantastic destination to bring guests and visitors to the region.

You will find excellent trails and walks suiting all fitness levels. If you are looking for more than a view, then try the challenging Laurieton Track – if you dare! You will go through spectacular blackbutt forests which mingle with enormous old stumps, reflecting the old days of timber harvesting in the park.

The mountain is also a ‘mecca’ for para-gliders and hang gliders and is a sight to enjoy as they launch from the summit.
