Camels Hump Walking Track

Moderate track
Starting close to the Camels Hump Carpark, on Cameron Drive, Mount Macedon, this walk takes you to the top of Camels Hump and back via the Camels Hump Walking Track. Embark on a steep 500-metre path that passes through the wet forest with tree ferns and beautiful grassy woodland dominated by Snow Gums, ascending to the highest point of Mount Macedon. The viewing platform at the peak offers spectacular panoramic views of Melbourne city, the Dandenong Ranges and the You Yangs. In winter, look out for fungi on the side of the track, and in spring, watch out for wildflowers. This walk is in the dog-friendly Mount Macedon Regional Park, so don't hesitate to bring your companion along. Just make sure you have them on a leash as it is required. 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.
