The Mount Stradbroke track commences at the Limestone Black Mountain Road on Second Emu Flat and follows a disused and overgrown 4WD fire trail for part of the walk. Currently Mount Stradbroke Walking Track is signposted at the start (ignore the signposted distance as it is not correct), the route is marked sporadically and open for adventurous walkers. Beginning on an old fire access track, it becomes a mere trail winding through snowgum woodland towards the rocky summit. Emerging onto the summit of Mount Stradbroke, you are greeted by views across the mountains and down into the Suggan Buggan Valley.
Mount Stradbroke is a mountain in Victoria and is nearby to Rocky Range State Faunal Reserve and Suggan Buggan. In the heart of the Australian Alps, this is one of Victoria's largest and most remote areas of national park. The rugged landscape features the magnificent Snowy River and Suggan Buggan Valleys, the headwaters of the Murray River and spectacular peaks including the Cobberas (No.1 1838 m) and Mount Tingaringy (1448 m).
A good campign spot can be found nearby at Native Dog Flat. The camp includes a Parks Victoria Toilet, water from the Buchan River and plenty of open space to camp. It is a great spot to base yourself for a few days to enjoy both Mount Stradbroke and Mount Cobberas.
