Mount Glenrowan is an 11km, grade 3 return hike, located in the Warby-Ovens National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

A pleasant return hike with excellent views over the plains all the way to the Alps.

From the car proceed along the dirt road near the creek for a few hundred yards till you come to a locked gate. There is a gap in the fence on the right and follow the signposted Nason Track up the hill till you come to a sealed road. Keep going upwards till you reach a fenced off building, when you take the path to the right.

Stay on the Ridge Track, ignoring other signposted tracks such as Casuarina, Chick Hill & Bluff. You will reach a sign warning of "Risk of Fire Entrapment, approval required to enter." This is for fire trucks, not hikers. You are fine to proceed past it to the top of Mt Glenrowan. There are good views over the township below and the big lump of Mt Buffalo in the distance. Return on the same path.

About the region

The Warby-Ovens National Park is a national park located in the Hume region of Victoria, Australia. The 14,655-hectare (36,210-acre) national park is situated approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) west of Wangaratta and 240 kilometres (150 mi) northeast of Melbourne.

The park draws its name from the Warby Ranges, which are named in honour of Ben Warby, a pastoralist who settled in the area in 1844, and the Ovens River. Initially reserved as a state park in 1978, the national park was declared in June 2010. Parts of the national park are contained within the 25,300-hectare (63,000-acre) Warby-Chiltern Box-Ironbark Important Bird Area because of its importance for the conservation of Box-Ironbark forest ecosystems and several species of threatened woodland birds dependent on them.

Getting there

There is no formal carpark but a small dirt road leading off to the left if travelling from the direction of Wangaratta on Taminick Gap Rd. There is plenty of room to park just at the start of this road.
