Mt. Mittamatite Regional Park

Mt. Mittamatite, at the back, can be seen from the top of Mt. Kosciuszko on a clear day.

Dividing the Corryong and Cudgewa Valleys is the striking Mt.Mittamatite Regional Park. Named Mt.Mittamatite after the indigenous word 'mitta mattub', the main mountain is the highest point in the park at 1002m above sea level. 

Mt.Mittamatite Regional Park consists of 4,280 hectares of rugged and rocky mountain country and has been long used as a destination for rock climbing and abseiling.

Ranch Road, Mt. Mittamatite Regional ParkRising sharply from the valleys either side of it, the imposing mountain park is a distinctive feature in the Upper Murray landscape. Mt.Mittamatite can be seen from the peak of Mt. Kosciuszko on a clear day.

Public access to the park is via Ranch Road, which is signposted on the Murray River Road, approximately half way between Towong and Tintaldra and about 17 kilometres from Corryong.

The 16 km journey to the summit should take about leisurely 25 minutes.

Ranch Road winds its way, initially, through private property until the park's entrance.

The road is graded and unsealed and provides many beautiful views of the surrounding area as it winds its way up to the summit. In wet conditions, the road may become slippery and caution should be taken.

At the summit of Mt.Mittamatite there are radio and aviation communication facilities as well as a fire spotting tower.

Basic picnic facilities are available at Embery's Lookout, Mt. Mittamatite Regional Park.There are two main lookout vantage points, Embery's Lookout and the Mt.Mittamatite Floral Reserve Track Lookout at the end of Ranch Road.

Embery's Lookout is a sign posted two minute drive off Ranch Road, culminating at a small car park and basic picnic area. No toilet facilities are provided.

A two minute walk beyond the car park, along a rocky path, ends at several large boulders and a lookout vantage point with a "WOW' factor. 

Take care of the steep descent immediately below the lookout, especially if you have young children.

The lookout accessed on the Floral Reserve track looks over the Corryong and Nariel Valleys. The journey of the meandering Nariel-Corryong Creek can be traced for kilometres from this vantage point.

On a clear day in either winter or spring, this is thebest panoramic viewof the snow covered Snowy Mountain range in Australia.
