Mount Larcom

Postcode: 4695

Mount Larcom is the name of both a mountain and township in the state of Queensland, Australia. The township is at the junction of the Bruce Highway and Port Curtis Way approximately 70 km south of the city of Rockhampton. The mountain, rising to 658 metres, is slightly west of the township and is a dominant feature on the horizon, especially from the town of Gladstone. So if you’re prepared to spend a couple of hours trekking, you can get some fabulous views.

There are historic places to visit as well, including an old cheese factory from the days when the area was a big dairying region.

And fishing enthusiasts should drop a line into “The Narrows” about 27km out of town. Crabbing is also popular.

If you’re coming on the Tilt Train, it stops at the historic Mt Larcom Railway Station.
