Please note
  • This walk involves a steep uphill climb with many steps, so it’s important to have a good level of fitness and sturdy walking shoes.
  • The weather in this area can be extreme and unpredictable, so please ensure you’re well prepared for your visit.

Mount Coryah walking track begins at Coryah Gap carpark and climbs steeply up the stepped ridge. The terraces were formed by a series of lava flows, each new one covering the terraces beneath it.

At the base of the cliffs follow the track around to the left. The track climbs to the top terrace, evidence of the most recent eruption, and then circles around the summit of Mount Coryah in an anti-clockwise direction, providing views to the south, east and north.

From the lookout the return track passes under the northern base of the summit through an impressive stand of grass trees. It then loops back to the track junction at the base of the cliffs. The loop track is very narrow, it follows the cliff edge and can be slippery when wet. If you wish to avoid the cliff edge or it has recently rained you may wish to miss the loop and return the way you came from the lookout.
