About Mount Larcom Climb

The prominent and distinctive peak of Mount Larcom is visible to the north-west from most points in Gladstone, with its summit is 632 metres above sea level. Matthew Flinders noted it when he explored Port Curtis, naming it after Captain Larcom under whom he had served. Because of its profile, it is often call "The Lion Mountain", resembling a lion and lioness facing each other. The prominent landmark provides a good ascent of two hours or so. The reward is a 360-degree view of the Gladstone area, rural lands and the harbour. On a clear day, you will see reef islands to the east and Rockhampton northwards. Mt Larcom is of volcanic origin, and your walk takes you through light eucalypt forest and grass trees. Subject to fitness, generally 5 hours should be allowed to complete the climb. It is a challenging walk, and best climbed in the cooler months, with an early start to capture the best views. The walk and climb is steep in places and is not recommended for younger children. No toilet facilities. It is advisable to check the local weather condition on the day of your climb as the peak can be shrouded in cloud.
