Mt Perry. The walk up to the tree line is the hardest part. About 1km , constantly going up, in the sun and warmth of the morning really takes it out of you. The track through the trees and up to the peak is quite a good one and anyone who enjoys a good bush walk should have no problem reaching the peak. Once there the views are fantastic.

Done. Was great day out and medium difficulty climbing.

We drove to Mt Perry township specifically for this walk only to find we couldn't actually find the start of the walk. No signage at all. We spent over an hour driving around trying to find the starting point, drove back into town to ask at the local store. The lovely lady there couldn't give us definite directions so she phoned someone she thought would know for sure. That person said it was too hard to find so we left very disappointed.

I walked up with my husband, who pushed his bike up to ride it back down. He got out of control and fell off, which I kind of knew he would because it's so steep. I had some photos (of the view and shed, not of his fall!), but I can't find them, sorry.
