Summary: The Tennent Trig Station is on top of Mount Tennent (1,385m) in Namadgi National Park, and reached by a 14.7km return bushwalk from the Namadgi Visitor Centre.

On the top of Mount Tennent is a tall communications mast, and nearby a slightly less tall fire tower. On top of the fire tower is the Tennent Trig Station. Although it’s a fairly long and strenuous climb to the top of Mount Tennent, it’s a fairly popular walk with bushwalker and mountain runners – so you’ll probably encounter a few people.

There are sweeping views from the base of the fire tower and trig station, including the Bimberi Wilderness and Namadgi National Park, and the Tinderry Nature Reserve.

Getting to the Tennent Trig Station

The trail to the Mount Tennent summit starts from the Namadgi Visitor Centre in Tharwa, which is about half an hour’s drive from Canberra. It’s a good quality trail, but it climbs relentlessly for about 7.5km to reach the 1,385m summit, where you can enjoy the panoramic views.
