Summary: Durras Trig is a traditional concrete plinth on top of Durras Mountain. It's accessed by a few different routes, including the popular Pretty Beach to Pebbly Beach Loop bushwalk.

Although Durras Mountain doesn’t really have a summit – it’s more of a wide ridge – on the highest point is the Durras Trig station. It has a traditional concrete base and metal name plate, but no vanes. There’s not much of a view from the trig; a short walk off the main track goes to an informal lookout with views over the coast.

Getting to Durras Trig

There are a few different ways to get to the Durras Trig station: the shortest and easiest routes are by following The Old Coast Road (a firetrail closed to traffic) from either Pebbly Beach Road (4.1km return) or Dangerboard Road (10km). The most common routes are from Pebbly Beach or Pretty Beach, both of which involve a steep climb up to the firetrail which runs along the ridge. The Pretty Beach to Pebbly Beach Loop (13.5km) traverses Durras Mountain and passes the trig station.
