The Camel's Hump Trail, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, starts from Mountain Creek Carpark, Paddys River leading mostly via the Camelback Fire Trail to Camel’s Hump. You will feel on top of the world as you round the summit of the Camel’s Hump, the view goes on forever. As you wander up to and back from the peak keep an eye out for the wide range of wildflowers scattered among the route. And if you’re lucky enough, you may see a wild dingo strolling around. Although most of the walk is on a wide firetrail the climb for the summit should not be underestimated. The rock scramble requires you to do some short climbs using hands and feet. Don’t forget about coming back down as that can be scarier for many people. Take care in wet conditions, especially in the rock scrambling part if you decide to make it to the top. Also keep in mind that the reserve closes at 8 PM in summer and 6 PM in winter. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
