Overview

Description

Migaloo the famous white whale has been sighted from here in the whale migrating season. You may even sight our native goannas, echidnas and vast array of bird life that inhabit the mountain.

Our standard tours explore the mountain in under an hour and a half with insights and commentaries to the historical artifacts that lay in ruin. For the keen adventurer we offer sunrise and sunset tours where you will capture the most amazing pictures and sky formations.

For the complete experience our Sunset summit club is for the romantic couples or individuals who wish to stop, sit back and revel in the spectacular views whilst enjoying our freshly made tasting plate of delectables as the sun goes down. Under torchlight you will be guided back to the base of the mountain.

This mountain was pivotal in the strategic defense of Australia during WW2 and especially 1942 what was known at the time as the crisis year. The Japanese had conquered much of SE Asia and landed on the beaches of Papua New Guinea. Australia seemed the next logical target in the imperial quest. The coal rich arch of Port Stephens was vital to the war effort and Prime minister Curtin ensured Australia’s defenses where in place.
