Mount Korong is a beautiful granite outcrop located between Inglewood and Wedderburn. 

Countless gigantic tors sprawl across the mountain and surrounding hills, creating unique shapes, caverns and spectacular scenery. 

A short climb up any hillside is rewarded with stunning views down over the rocky landscape, which is particularly attractive when the grass is green during winter/spring. 

Mount Korong is very similar to the popular Melville Caves in nearby Kooyoora State Park.

Mount Korong is fantastic for bushwalking, free camping, birdwatching and rock climbing. 

Dogs are permitted within the Mount Korong Nature Conservation Reserve if kept on a lead. 

How to access Mount Korong 

A dirt road travels around the reserve in a loop. Two wheel drive vehicles can make it into the reserve in dry conditions, but are advised to turn right at the entrance and travel anti-clockwise through the reserve as there are some steep, bumpy sections which may be impossible to climb if travelling the other way. 

The road is very uneven and gets steep towards the end. Four wheel drives will have no issues travelling through the reserve.

This is so good, there is so much good and useful information here.
Great site for information & found it whilst researching family history.
The suggestion of gold prospecting on the Mount Korong Reserve can only result in frustration for the fossicker. There is no known record of gold being found on Mount Korong - the only mineral found in the korongamite granite are traces of molybdenum, which was mined nearby on the Little Mount during the war years.
