Mt Beckworth has very fine grained granite which is friendly on the skin.


Only a short trip from Melbourne Mt Beckworth is home to some of the best granite bouldering and route climbing in the state! Definiely worth a day trip!


1 and a half hours from Melbourne, Take Sunraysia Hwy North from Ballarat, turn right at Learmonth-Sulky rd and immediately left onto Donovans Rd. At the T intersection turn left onto Addington-Creswick Rd, then right onto Learmonth-Clunes Rd. Turn left onto Coghills Creek Rd then Right onto Fentons. The road will become unsealed and look for Mountain creek road on the left which takes you in to the reserve.
