The climb begins near the Historic town of Ararat. I stayed in the Courthouse Inn the night prior; it was fine for a night and affordable, with a shared shower and bath. The Innkeeper is a very friendly old man. The hotel restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday.

This is a must do in Australia, which I say confidently, despite it being my first climb in the country thus far. You’ll start with mellow gradients and a nearly constant tunnel of trees.

About halfway up, the climb opens up to stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

There is a parking lot a few kilometers from the summit where the road is gated off to cars. Looks to be a popular spot for hikers. Save for a few potholes, the road is in pristine condition and a very fun descent.

The town of Hall’s Gap near the base has some nice coffee shops and a visitor center with wifi.
