Mt Tyson is situated to the west of Tully and overlooks the town. The summit is 640 metres high with Scout Rock at 570m providing a lookout over Tully and the surrounding district. There is a walking track to Scouts Rock and the summit that takes 2-3 hours return.
The track starts at the end of Brannigan Street next to a large water tank. It is a reasonably strenuous walk but on a clear day the views from Scout Rock make the effort worthwhile. Walkers are advised to register their climb on a board at the 5 Star Supermarket (corner of Butler and Bryant Streets) and to remove their name upon return.
The board is checked at 6pm to ensure that all walkers have returned.
