Camels Hump Lookout Walk (Macedon Regional Park)


Camels Hump Lookout Walk (Macedon Regional Park)

At 1,011 m Camels Hump is the highest peak in the range. The Camels Hump rocky outcrop and the nearby Hanging Rock are a mamelon - a volcanic feature formed six million years ago when thick lava squeezed through a narrow vent in the earth's crust.

A 500 m gravelled path from Camels Hump Trailhead takes you to the peak of Camels Hump. Snow Gums can be seen at the summit and a direction dial on the viewing platform helps to identify features in the surrounding landscape. For your safety and to protect the environment, please remain on the walking track and inside the viewing platform barrier.

Camels Hump is a popular spot with climbers. Please note that rock climbing is permitted only at Camels Hump in the area bounded by Cameron Drive, Camels Hump Trailhead, Macedon Ranges Walk and Mount Macedon Road. The site must be accessed from existing walking tracks and should only be undertaken by experienced climbers or under the guidance of skilled and qualified instructors.

Visitor tips: Please bring your own drinking water and warm clothing. Check the weather forecast before exploring the park as Mount Macedon is usually cooler than surrounding areas and conditions can change quickly.
