Route/Trail notes:

The walk can be taken from a number of starting points however the most direct way is following the Burbie trail which is a short distance from the Split Rock carpark. The majority of the walk is on a fairly well kept fire road that leads all the way up past Camp Burbie to Danu Camp. From there continue on to Cathedral Rock and Arch ( a 2km round trip) before returning to Danu Camp and left on a well marked trail that takes you up to Mt Exmouth summit. The track is extremely well marked with plenty of signs along the way.


National Park entry fee applies (2022 = $8 per vehicle/day). Park entry fees and camping permits can only be purchased online from National Parks NSW. The campgrounds are along John Renshaw Parkway.

Excellent, straight forward hike up to the summit of Mt Exmouth. The path is very easy to follow with frequent signs along the way. Nothing complicated or precarious, just a nice walk. We were fortunate enough to go right after a polar blast so we saw a heap of snow after getting above Danu campsite. The clouds parted as we arrived at the summit giving us a fantastic view of the Warrumbungles. On the way back down we saw a bunch of mountain goats chilling near the path.
