Information

It is a low rocky series of knolls, of sandstone rises and knolls in the Kata Kata Hills. Situated on the edge of the Little Sandy and Gibson deserts, it has seen many of the famous explorers of the 19th century pass by. Ernest Giles, Lawrence Wells and others all passed within sight of Mount Madley during their journeys. The highest of these rises are marked with several cairns built by modern day explorers of more recent times. The Mount is barely discernable when approaching from the south being shielded till almost the last instant by large red dunes. The access track from the south then moves through a small rocky pass to the east of the hill. From the base you climb the 30 metres or so over a jumble of loose boulders and stone to make the flat plateau of the summit. The peak has a commanding view of the vast empty plains to the north and northwest. There is a native well (katu Katu Well) a further 2 km to the north. There are numerous old and faded tracks about the base of the hills which provide ample sites for camping.
