Climb Summary by PJAMM Cycling’s Brad Butterfield:

Donna Buang begins ascending just outside the former gold mining town of Warbutorn. There are a number of small cafes that were very lively with both cyclists and motorcyclists on the day that I rolled through. Parking in town is easy to find, or if preferred, there are a number of large pullouts on the climb itself that offer unrestricted parking. The climb stays right around the average gradient mark of 6.4% for the duration, making the 3500 foot climb disappear beneath your wheels without any tough pitches to speak of. Views of the valley below are blocked by what felt like a dense South American jungle to me -- except this is just outside of Melbourne central -- amazing! At the top there is a big grassy knoll, a bathroom, and a large metal structure with a staircase to a viewpoint. To get a view of the surrounding area from the summit, you’ve got to climb the extra 50 feet, or so, up to the top of the observation tower as the trees block the view from ground level even once at the top of the climb. It’s worth it though!
