Places to visit

Camels Hump

Like nearby Hanging Rock, this rocky outcrop is a mamelon – a volcanic feature formed six million years ago when thick lava squeezed through a narrow vent in the earth’s crust. The highest peak in the range, Camels Hump offers superb views of Hanging Rock and the surrounding countryside.

Named for its distinctive shape and position on Mount Macedon, the Camels Hump has a viewing platform at the top of a 300 metre path. There is a carpark and information board at the base and is a popular stop along Cameron Drive on the way to the Memorial Cross.

How to get to Camels Hump

Approximately 500 metres into Cameron Drive, the Camels Hump has a car park with a short walk to the summit of the rocky monument.

Be careful when driving past Camels Hump as there can be wildlife crossing the roadway.

Interesting things to look for at Camel's Hump

Koalas like to live in the trees at Camels Hump. Keep an eye out for them when hiking to the top.
