Picnics, walks and camping atop Mount Alexander. Beautiful scenery and practical facilities. Open-fire cooking, clean running water, flat terrain and maintained toilets.
What we now call Mount Alexander, was first known as 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. 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.
