An uphill walk until you reach the plateau at the summit - well worth the effort for the stunning views of Dookie and district. The round trip is approximately 5.4km.
Turn off the Dookie Nalinga Road onto Mount Major TV Road and continue until you reach the entrance gate on the right hand side with the University of Melbourne sign behind it. Climb over the stile and you're on your way. The walk is up to the top of the hill where there are a number of television and mobile phone signal stations, follow the path. The return walk is back down the same trail.
The Lions Club fixture at the summit indicates the direction and distance to surrounding landmarks.
At its peak Mount Major is 381 metres above sea level.
In spring you'll enjoy views of golden canola, in summer you can see hundreds of bales of hay across the district. Autumn showcases the patchwork of red volcanic soils and green growth, with vineyards scattered throughout the area.
Mount Major is also used as a mountain bike location.
