Mount Richmond National Park



Mount Richmond is an extinct volcano surrounded by low, flat land. The volcano is covered with a layer of sand blown inland long ago from Discovery Bay.

With spectacular spring wildflowers and abundant wildlife in unspoilt bushland, Mount Richmond is the perfect place to have a picnic, take a walk or simply drive to the summit and enjoy the magnificent views.

The Mount Richmond Picnic Area has tables, fireplace, toilets and an information shelter.

Walks
Benwerrin Nature Walk - 1 hour. This self-guided walk is recommended for all visitors. Information is available at the picnic ground where the walk begins.

Noels Walk - 1 hour. Descends through tall stringybark forest to peppermint and Swamp Gum open forest at the base of the mountain. The last section is fairly steep.

Ocean View Walk - 1 hour. A lookout gives good views of Cape Bridgewater and Discovery Bay. Koalas can sometimes be seen feeding on Manna Gums along the track.

West Walk - 1 hour. Featuring good ocean view through stunted stringybarks and open heathland. The track may be wet in places in winter and spring.
