Where is it?  

Croajingolong National Park, Gippsland, 500km north-east of Melbourne

How to see it for yourself?

Turn off the Princes Highway at Genoa Peak Road, west of Genoa. Travel 8km to the car park  and picnic area. From there, take a 1.5km return walk to the summit (allow an hour each way). A steel ladder gives access to the viewing platform.

Why I love it

“Croajingolong National Park is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, which means there is an effort to preserve the landscape in such a way that people can discover it and enjoy it without destroying it. Standing at Genoa Peak is a supremely peaceful experience.” – Elisabeth Knowles, former editor, Australian Traveller
