Description

The summit of Boulder Hill is littered with exposed boulders hence the name. A heap of small rocks have been collected to mark the summit with a sizable cairn. The views of the surrounding area are beautiful.

Short Walk: Access to Boulder Hill is from Buchanans Rd Tramping Track from the north or Belmont Road from the south.

Family Friendly: Open green spaces and great views with never any crowds.
