Pigeon House Mountain Hike

.

Directions: From the Milton traffic lights drive west past the showground and follow the sealed road for say 10 or 12 minutes arriving at the sign post to Pigeon House mountain. Follow up the dirt road on the right to the car park.

The Pigeon House Mountain climb is a “MUST DO” for those that are “FIT” visiting the Mollymook Milton Ulladulla area. An estimated 8,000 people making the climb each year.  Allow 4 hours. We left early in the morning and had breakfast on the summit. Majestic views are enjoyed at sunrise. On a clear day you can see the entire coastline from Point Perpendicular in the north to Mount Dromedary in the south.   (Walking trail maps used with permission)

Captain Cook & Sir Joseph Banks wrote about this remarkable peak back in April 1770. The Aborigines of the Walbanja and Wandandian tribes called it Dithol meaning a woman’s breast or Did-Del. From the top of the mountain there are magnificent panoramic views of the rugged cliffs and gorges carved by the Clyde River and its tributaries. Dominating the view to the north-west are two elongated plateau of Byangee Walls and the Castle. My wife and I can confirm the majesty of this “Hike” and the glorious views in all directions, once on top of the peak.

If on a “day trip” I would suggest picking up a “picnic basket” from Gav’s deli. Alternatively simply catch up on a nice lunch or morning tea at the Pigeon House tea rooms.       (Click on images to enlarge)
