You can drive up 12km from the main road and the walk up is only 1.8km from the carpark of mount william. the walk may be a bit strenuous so make sure to have good walking shoes on - the view is worth it!

The walk up to the top from the carpark is 2km & fairly steep, a struggle for some. But feel assured it is well worth the effort - IMO by far the best lookout in the Grampians & the others are good, but Mt William...More
