This location, on the Natimuk-Frances Rd, was a surprise. Not only did we watch adventurous rock-climbers, but we spotted White Browed Babbler families, brown tree creepers on the road, honeyeaters and grey shrike thrush. No facilities but worth a stop.

It was ok I guess, but there wasn't any wifi so my snap chat was like useless. There's just a bunch of rocks and kangaroos. It's like someone thought that would be cool. But then it wasn't.

We didn't luck out with the weather and had to abseil off the Bishop route before it got too wet, but this is a fun little spot off Arapiles. Lots of options.

Mitre Rock is the smaller sister/cousin to Mt Arapiles on the other side of the road. Mitre Rock in itself is worth a look and provided rock climbers with some good climbing - but again pales in comparison to its bigger sister. Mitre is easier...More

Just down the road from mount Arapiles this 'rock' is very popular with beginner rock climbers or people who want to getaway from the popular Arapiles. You can get get a great view of this 'rock' from the summit of Mt Arapiles. Or you can...More
