A pleasant 25 minute drive from Halls Gap will take you to Mount William. Once you leave the main road, drive until you come to the car park. You have no choice but to leave your car and walk from here, as the road is...More

The first half of this walk is TOUGH but it does get easier past the corner with the chair on the right hand side so don’t give up. It’s also past this point where you start to see the beautiful mountain range and how much...More

Make sure you are fit; you walk to the peak from the car park - it's straight up and down. The view is worth it. Take a warm jacket as the weather can change quickly

From the car park to the top is a good walk but is a up a strong incline. Well worth the effort when you get to the top with views to Stawell/Ararat and beyond.

The walk to the summit from the carpark is about 2km, which sounds easy in theory but there is a sign warning that "strenuous" walking is required & it isn't lying! I am a relatively fit person who works out daily but this walk still...More

Signage indicates that must be fit. An extremelly steep climb on a bitumen road. Not a great adventure on a cold or windy day. Given the ascend, on a sunny/ nice day, the view would be spectacular, no shade along the way. Go prepared.

A steep walk from the car park but worth it for the view. As I came back down to the car park, others were walking up to watch the sunset. Take care on the roads as you head back to Halls Gap if returning around...More

Not that I recall. We stayed at the Pinnacle Holiday Lodge at Hall's Gap and drove to Mt William car park. It is a steep hike to the top (especially in the hot summer months) from the car park. Didn't notice much around... More
