Quick links: Back to Summit Details

Access to Mt Granite


Granite Mountain is relatively easy in dry weather. Coming from Tumbarumba follow the Tooma Rd until the Eliott Way which runs off to the left. Follow this to the Maragle Power Line Rd and turn left. Follow through to Jimmies Rd. which will take you to the summit. As far as I am aware there are very few services up here now as it is an abandoned Air Services site. The top has enough room to camp on and obviously people do as there are various remnants of fires around the outside of the compound. Unless you are an experienced 4WD'er, I'd not recommend attempting this in the wet. In quite a number of parts the track can become very slippery. Although the last part of the climb is quite reasonable despite the track not being maintained as it was in the Air Services days. John VK2YW
