Mount Penang loop walk is only 3km, but you’ll need to be a relatively experienced bushwalker nonetheless, due to the short but steep hills and unmarked trail. The effort will be worth it though, as at the peak you’ll be able to enjoy soaking in some truly amazing 360-degree views from the summit of Mount Penang.

Beginning at Tugalong Road, this challenging but rewarding loop winds steadily uphill and continues on to the scenic summit of Mount Penang. Take in the awe-inspiring views from the top, savour the serenity of your surroundings, and look out for local birdlife soaring overhead before making your way back.   

This walk is best enjoyed during the more temperate seasons of spring and autumn.
