At 1028 m, Golden Mount is the second highest peak in the Strathbogie Ranges, complete with some Snow Gums on top. Immediately to the east of the peak is a spectacular and steep rock escarpment that plunges down to the valley of Clear Creek, a tributary of Brankeet Ck. In spite of the rubbish left by visitors and the illegal off-road trail-bike tracks (all too common!), it’s a glorious spot. And at this time of year there were quite a few wildflowers on show, though it’ll be better in a few weeks. If you visit on a week-day you’ll have the spot and the glorious serenity of those rocks, to yourself. Here are a few more pics; click a pic to start the slide show.
