Mt. Mittamatite Regional Park

Dividing the Corryong and Cudgewa Valleys is the striking Mt.

Mittamatite Regional Park. Mt. Mittamatite (indigenous word-

'mitta mattub') is the highest point in the park at 1003 metres

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.

Rising sharply from the valleys either side of it,

the imposing mountain park is a distinctive

feature in the Upper Murray landscape

and can be see 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 is about 17 km from

Corryong. The 16 km journey to the

summit should take a leisurely 25


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.

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

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 short walk beyond the

car park, along a rocky path, ends at several

large boulders and a lookout vantage point

with a genuine "WOW' factor. On a clear

day in either winter or spring, this is the best

panoramic view of the snow-covered Snowy

Mountain range in Australia.

Take care of the steep descent

immediately below the lookout,

especially if you have young children.

Floral Reserve Lookout This lookout is a little harder to find and requires a four wheel drive vehicle and some walking. 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.
