    Gangulu walk

    Grade 3

    Distance: 860m return
    Time: allow 20min
    Details: a short walk to the base of the mountain offers great views of the summit, the distinctive basalt columns and scree slopes. Four interpretive signs share stories about the significance of this area to the Gangulu Nation People. The walking track finishes at the fourth sign, return via the same path.

    Climbing Mount Scoria is dangerous and not recommended. The scree slopes are very unstable, one wrong step can cause many rocks to move and result in fall injuries—serious injuries have occurred here.
