Mount Nameless stands a massive 1,128 metres about sea level and travelling to the top provides sweeping 360-degree views of the Hammersley Ranges and the town of Tom Price. For a return hike to the top and bottom of the mountain, it’s recommended you allow approximately 3 hours.

Mount Bruce (aka Punurrunha) is the second-highest mountain in Western Australia, offering a long and rigorous climb - perfect for hiking enthusiasts. We recommend tackling the 6-hour (approx.) round trip in the early morning before the real heat sets in.
