Goordgeela Lookout Trail is a 3km, grade 4 Return hike located in Mt Augustus National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.
For those wishing to get good views but finding the longer Summit Trail a bit intimidating, the Goordgeela Lookout Trail could be for you. This 1.2 kilometre return trail heads up a creek bed then rises up to a large rocky outcrop for good views over the plains. Moderate degree of fitness required.
While this is a short trail, once you leave the flatter stony creekbed section, the steeper climbing up the rocky outcrop still requires a moderate level of fitness. At the trail end, you come across a flat section on the flank of the rocky outcrop with fine views across the plains. In the foreground, you notice a line of rivergums flanking the Lyons River and Cattle Pool. The Godfrey Range breaks the horizon to the north. You may linger for a while, so allow up to two hours for this trail.
