Mount O’Brien in the Central Wheatbelt offers a magnificent view of the Wongan Hills Reserve from its peak. Drive to the Centenary of Federation Wheatbelt Lookout for panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and lakes. Bring along your binoculars to examine the area in more detail.
Enjoy a picnic with a spectacular view and make use of the barbecue facilities on offer. Mount O’Brien is the second-highest peak in the Wongan Hills, standing at 424 metres high. It provides an uninterrupted view as far as the eye can see.
Time your visit with the wildflower season between September and December to see an incredible profusion of colour across the countryside. The town takes pride in their diverse wildflower collection which includes several endangered species that can only be found in this area.
Mount O’Brien is a 10-minute drive from the town of Wongan Hills and a two-and-a-half-hour drive north of Perth.
