Mt. Speculation Walk

24 January 2015

This is a short (1.2km one-way) walk, starting at the 'carpark' at the end of Mt Speculation Track and climbing some 200m vertically to the top of Mt Speculation.   Here you have wonderful 360o views of the surrounding mountains.  Today the family (3 generations) went on the walk - only the youngest were carried and all enjoyed it.

It has been said that the best camping spot in the
high country is under the trees - top right!
