Mount Amos


Mount Amos is a brilliant challenge set in the stunning Freycinet National Park. You'll have to have a good head for heights, have shoes with good grip & be willing to scramble the whole way up & down again. Despite the difficulty, the reward is spectacular at the top with unmatched views of Wineglass Bay & surrounds. An exceptional climb! Don't forget to stop & enjoy the view.

Getting there

Head to Coles Bay then follow C302 to Wineglass Bay Carpark (Freycinet National Park). About two hours from Hobart or Launceston. Car park can get VERY busy in peak periods, such as January, so consider getting there very early late in the day.

Route/Trail notes

Starting at the Wineglass Bay carpark, the track soon veers off to the left, with a warning sign for good measure. It rises fairly consistently up to the summit after about 800m, with scrambling required for some sections.

  • Very slippery in some sections in wet weather.
  • You'll need suitable footwear with good grip.
  • Keep an eye out for trail markers!
  • A spectacular view from the top of Mt Amos that is well worth the effort!


National Park Entry Fee payable.

One of my all time favourite hikes - killer views at the end. Took my 8 and 10 year old boys up and whilst they’re weren’t many/any children doing it they loved it (they’re experienced scramblers).

Amazing views

Before starting the walk Dion was very worried. He thought the walk was very difficult with a slippery path and unstable surface but at the end it was not that bed. The beginning of the walk is nice and easy, quiet flat. After about 15 min walking the climb starts, there are big rocks all around and you will walk on porous granit pretty much all the time apart from a few spots where the suface isn't as porous as the other one because of the water that runs when it rains. You will have a beautiful view during the ascent but the best view it's at the top of the Mt. It is a bit steep in certain areas but just don't look back and don't stop, that's what l do. I saw old ladys climing the Mt with no problems, so u can do it!
It is very worth. Dion liked it very much!
