Picnics, walking and camping atop Mount Alexander. Beautiful scenery and practical facilities. Flat terrain, toilets, open-fire cooking and clean running water.
Mount Alexander was named leanjanuk by the local Dja Dja Wurrung Tribe.
In more recent times, a Koala Park was established near the top of the mount and named Leanganook, in honour of that ancient name. It once included a full enclosure and a large population of native koalas. These days, the koala enclosure has been dismantled but the native population are still around—although maybe harder to spot.
There remain excellent picnic and toilet facilities as well as connections to a network of walking tracks. Mount Alexander’s West Ridge walking track heads north from here.
