Visible from 60 kilometres in every direction, Mount Elephant dominates the landscape and now you have the chance to put yourself on the top of it. Open Sundays from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
There is a growing number of kangaroos and wallabies which can be found in the bush around the base. Hawks and eagles patrol overhead searching for unwary rabbits, while many smaller birds flit among the denser vegetation.
A modern Visitor Centre with unique design and spectacular views provides nature displays, light refreshments and toilets. It is manned by local volunteers who have the answer to any questions.
The walk from the car park to the crater rim is a two kilometre return walk to the peak (John and Millie Borbridge track) and around the crater rim is an extra three kilometres (steep in sections).
The path is steep and uneven, not suitable for prams or wheelchairs or those with limited mobility.
The Visitor Centre is available for hire to groups of up to 50 people. Catering can be arranged. Education packages can be provided for school groups of any level.
