|Mount Roland stands at 1233 metres above sea level and provides a stunning backdrop to the Kentish Municipality. 7461 hectares surrounding the range is within Mt Roland Regional Reserve and Mt Roland Conservation Area. The walk takes in the plains and plateau leading to the summit of the peak. There are two tracks to the summit.|
The first track, the Mt Roland via Kings Road (Face Track), starts from Kings Road, Claude Road Village off the C136. The track turns into a steep mountain climb. This track is not recommended as it is potentially dangerous, steep and awkward. Walking time takes from three to five hours return.
The second walking track starts at Gowrie Park Village on O'Neill's Road off the C136. Walking time takes from four to six hours return. This is the easiest track to walk to the summit as it has a moderate incline. From Gowrie Park Village, travel towards Sheffield. Make a right turn into O'Neill's Road and drive for approximately one kilometre to the carpark. The walk follows a vehicle track for a few kilometres. You will pass a couple of waterfalls and creeks. After 45-60 minutes you will come to a log bridge that crosses O'Neill's Creek. The trail becomes a narrow track and starts to steepen. The track continues for a further 30 minutes in order to reach the saddle at 900m elevation. A left turn is then necessary to head towards the summit of Mt Roland. The track rises gently across the plateau and the summit is approximately an hour away. The trig point at the top of the summit provides spectacular 360 degree views to Bass Strait, Cradle Mountain and Barn Bluff.
