Mount Juliet is a 8.7km, grade 4 Return hike located in Yarra Ranges National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 4-5hrs to complete.


Mount Juliet is among the highest peaks in the Yarra Ranges region, with a very steep walking track leading to the 1120m summit. The highest summit in the park is nearby Mt Donna Buang at 1223m.

The hike commences at Road Three, a parks management track off the Maroondah Highway (7 km east of Healesville) and follows this track east for approximately 2km to a junction of an incomplete 4WD track. The foot trail starts at the junction of this road and Road Five. From there it is 4.5km in a direct line to the summit, where a stone cairn is located.

Mt Juliet is one of several trigonometric cairns remaining from the original Geodetic Survey of Victoria. The summit walk is among the most difficult in the Ranges, with a rise in altitude from 211m to 1120m, with the final section over rocks.

Getting there

Follow the Maroondah Highway through Healesville, to small car park signed Mt Juliet Track, about 2 km past the Graceburn Weir. Park near the gate


The ascent to the summit from the junction of Road four is steep and arduous and requires a high level of fitness and stamina. With a change in altitude of around 800m. There is a stone cairn at the top, built in the late 1800s to mark a geodetic survey point, but no views, due to extensive regrowth from the 1939 fires.
