Mount O'Brien is located a few kilometres north west of Wongan Hills via the Waddington - Wongan Hills Road.

It is the second highest peak in the Shire of Wongan Hills at 424 metres.

Vehicle access to the summit was first made available in 1986 but it was not until 2001 that a lookout and picnic area were added.

This was made possible by a grant from the government and with the hard work from many volunteers and local businesses. It was a Centenary of Federation project.

The track to the summit is not suitable for caravans but is fine for most small to medium sized vehicles. We were told it would be safe to take our Coaster to the top and it had no problem climbing the hill or turning at the top.

The lookout gives wonderful 360 degree views of the surrounding farmland and is best visited during wildflower season from August to October.

The vast fields of yellow flowers you may see from the top are not wildflowers but canola crops but they can be quite spectacular.

BBQs, seats, tables, shelter and lighting are provided at the site and the lookout is wheelchair accessible.
