This is a splendid walk to summit one of the magnificent summits in this wonderful area. There is a service track up to the radio mast building from the T-junction at Telegraph Saddle car-park. Mt Oberon is an easy to medium climb, standing at a small height of about 558 metres. All along the service track there are fabulous views out over the coast and bushland.

At the top there is a relatively flat rock summit that provides a 360 degree viewing platform from where you can see the sapphire waters breaking on Norman Beach way below and through the crystal clear air look all the way north-west along the indentured coastline. Other than the camping site at Tidal River below you, there is an endless vista of gumtree forest and bush as far as the eye can see.

To the keen eyed it is possible to spot Kangaroos, Wallabies, Emus (if they do not see you first) and many Wombats. That is not to exclude the various snakes ... luckily the only one we spotted had been too slow crossing the access track!
