Enjoy the 360 degree views of the surrounding forest, heathlands, coast and the magnificent Yeagarup Dunes from the top of this granite monadnock
A huge block of granite reaching 187 metres above sea level, Mount Chudalup is known as a monadnock – a large, isolated hill above a generally flat plain. This granite outcrop is home to 42 species of moss, 28 species of lichen and 6 species of liverwort, some of which are rare and have only been recorded at this place. They are an integral part of the complex ecosystem that exists on this ‘granite island’ and great care should be taken not to damage them.
The best way to experience the fantastic views over the national park and beyond is to set out on the Summit Walk Trail. This leaves the picnic shelter at the parking area and leads up through karri and marri forest which gives way to peppermints, grass trees, snottygobbles, banksias and sheoaks. Once you reach the granite section, look out for the amazing diversity of mosses and lichens. From the top, climbers are rewarded with spectacular views over the wetlands, forests and coast of D’Entrecasteaux National Park. Be aware that the granite can be slippery in wet weather and there are steep drop offs on the summit.
