About the Walk
A popular day walk to the summit of Mt. Dom Dom and return by completing the circuit walk back to the car park.
The Walk in Detail
The walk starts at the car park and circles the mountain anti-clockwise. Soon after the start we divert from the main track to the climb to the summit of Mt. Dom Dom.
Returning to the main track we proceed in an easterly direction down hill before heading north and meeting up with some 4 wheel drive tracks that proceed towards Narbethong. We then leave the 4X4 track and head west before swinging around to the south as we begin the climb back to the finish at Dom Dom car park.
Should I be especially careful on any part of the walk? Yes, the diversion to the summit requires some care, as the track is not well defined. Some of the 4-wheel sections of the track may be slippery in parts if there has been recent rain. Suitable clothing & good walking boots are advisable; some walkers may like to use hiking poles.
Where do we start?: At the Dom Dom Saddle picnic area & car park.
How do we get to the start?: From Healesville follow Maroondah Highway North East, past Fernshaw Reserve on the right hand side of the road and proceed on up "Blacks Spur", at the summit turn right (east) into Dom Dom saddle picnic area car park (500m).
Track to Mt Dom Dom not well defined; parts of track can be slippery after rain; good footwear and walking poles recommended
