Mount Nebo

Mount Nebo Summit
The kids were a bit restless this morning, so we decided to burn up some of their excess energy by taking them on a hike. We drove up into the D’Aguilar Ranges and hiked from the road to the Summit of Mount Nebo (620m) and back – a total of about 6.5km.

We followed a forestry fire trail for about 2.5km to the summit, and came back via a walking track on the southern side of the ridge, which meant we were able to check out a number of different ecosystems.

    1. Hi, I looked around for hours, and couldn’t find any record of an Aboriginal place name for Mount Nebo, sorry. The closest I could come was for nearby Mount Samson, which was known as “Buran” (or “windy place”).
