Mt Bruce, or Punurrunha, is the Western Australia’s second highest mountain, boasting one of the country’s most scenic walks.
There are three walks of differing lengths and classifications, offering something for most visitors.
For a view over the nearby Marandoo mine, a 500 metre walk from the Mt Bruce carpark to Marandoo View is an easy option
The Honey Hakea trail continues on from the Marandoo View for another 1.8 kilometres to a vantage point with views over the mountain ranges and towards the Marandoo mine. This part of the trail is relatively easy, with a small amount of scrambling along a short section of boulders along the way. This is a 4.6 kilometre round trip from the Mt Bruce car park, and the Honey Hakea trail is Class 3.
Continuing on from the Honey Hakea trail, the Class 5 Mt Bruce Summit trail takes you a further 2.2 kilometres to the summit. This challenging walk offers the reward of spectacular views across the Hamersley Ranges but walkers will need to tackle a steep ascent and some scrambling and climbing. This trail is a 9 kilometre round trip from the car park.
The access road to Mt Bruce is a 3km unsealed road, with a turnoff from Karijini Drive close to the Banjima Drive West entry station. An information bay and toilet is also located at the Mt Bruce carpark.
