Mt Kiangarow walk

Burtons Well

A short walk to the highest point of the Bunya mountains

Getting there

From the Burtons Well picnic and camp ground walk 100m up the road to the well marked starting position. There's a large board there indicating all the tracks in the local area.



Route/Trail notes

Some old storm damage still remains. And now the stinging plants are starting to colonise the open areas.


There is now camping. Only at approved camp grounds.

Great view from the summit

Nice short 2.2km walk. A steady slope upwards which meant the way back was all downhill. Not too hard an upward slope though. Lookout was great over the tops of the grass trees to a great vast area, well worth the walk.

Easy walk with a fantastic view from the lookout. Loved the grass trees across the top.

Not too steep and it actually flattens out for the last bit at the top. Stunning views!

Caught a beautiful sunset here and walked back down with a good head torch, checking out the wildlife. Very nice, especially when the wind is gentle.

A mystical magic short walk. Beautiful!

We enjoyed the walk, but beware of ticks. None actually attached, but three climbed up on us while at the lookout.

Beautiful walk was heavy mist on the way up but cleared enough to reveal beautiful views from the top of the walk. And remained sunny on the way back it was the best of both. Very easy walk with great views.

So far as mountains go, this is a nice easy walk with a gentle incline all the way to the top. Several pockets of grass trees along the way which are quite pretty. The path is really good too.

Did this walk with my parents to discover a fantastic view at the very top. An easy stroll well worth it.

Did the 1.1km in under 19mins with full pack on. It was quite fun to push ourselves. At the very top there are only views towards the East. And the lookout has numerous rocks to sit on.

Watch out for the stinging plants everywhere. Views all thge way to the coastline uninterrupted. Be ready for change of conditions. They really do happen within 5mins.

If you follow the track back down and approx 50m from the lookout there is a side track going to your right when facing down the track. This will take you to good western side views, worth the effort and since more and more people are going over there soon the track will be well worn.

The weather changed 7 times in an hour while up there.
