Mount William is the highest point within the Grampians National Park. Sir Thomas Mitchell reached the summit with a group of explorers in 1836.Three transmission towers are located at the summit of Mount William including an amateur radio repeater. A sealed service road continues to the summit, but is not accessible by vehicle to the general public.Visitors to the mountain can drive to a carpark located approximately 920 metres (3,020 ft) up the mountain, before proceeding on foot for 1.8 kilometres (1.1 mi) to the summit. It will take a person of moderate fitness approximately 45 mins to walk. No permit is required to climb the mountain.
Follow the track from the carpark across Fyans Creek footbridge and begin the steady climb though tall Messmate forest and native pines, along the Western slope of the Mt William range.
A gently undulating walking track follows Mud Hut Creek upstream to a series of rock steps and on to Beehive Falls (best after rain).
Follow the sign posted track through a densely vegetated gully. The track leads you to the base of an iron-stained cliff. It’s a steep and strenuous climb through fallen boulders and along exposed ledge.
Arresting sandstone walls, ever-present waterfalls and abundant native plants line the awesome Grand Canyon track near Blackheath in the Blue Mountains.
The view that awaits you at the end of this steep trail is spectacular. Water cascades over huge cliffs into a deep pool, sending fine sprays of rainbow mist high into the air above a stunning gorge.
