The mountain looms over Rockhampton like a protective guardian. Bushwalking and rock-climbing aside, Mount Archer is an excellent family getaway. You get tremendous views of Rockhampton, the Capricorn Coast and the sunset from the summit (which isn’t so hard to reach). There are some excellent picnic and BBQ facilities that are quite popular with the locals, so you might want to try those out. Of the wildlife to run across here, the most prominent is the cockatoo. If you’re feeling hardy, you can even walk 11 kms from Fraser Park (near the mountain) to German Street. At any rate, going to and fro along the road to the mount is wonderful enough for its peaceful views.

  • What a place! Great views. Walks through the bush. Plenty of people walk, run and bike up the road. The new raised walkway is a fantastic addition. Definitely worth a look too get your bearings or to get close to nature.

  • Mt Archer is a great place. It's possible to walk all the way up under 2 h. Unfortunately, the access will be restricted from 19.11.18 till March 2019. Road works, I think.

  • Ok new walkway nice but hay what about doing up the lead in area as well and fixing the other paths that have had nothing done. For years. Th old pathways near car park are dangerous. Council is all about let's make a statement and not fix the whole area.

  • Magnificent views to Ricky & the South & West & North. Tried a couple of the shorter walks, & would be tempted to do longer walks on another visit. Great picnic spot/s

  • New board walk is great - good views but early morning is best a bit hazy in the afternoon. Good BBQ area.
