Lookout at the summit of Mt Brown, toilets and firepits. No water tank located near trail.
History
Mount Brown is located in the Flinders Ranges about 20 kilometres east of the city of Port Augusta.

The mountain was named by the British navigator Matthew Flinders on 9 March 1802 after the Scottish botanist, Robert Brown, who was a member of HMS Investigator’s scientific team. Brown along with others from HMS Investigator including Ferdinand Bauer and William Westall climbed the mountain on 10 and 11 March 1802.

The Nukunu people are traditional custodians of the land.

The mountain has a height of 964 m (3,163 ft).

Since 1993, it has been located within the boundaries of the protected area known as the Mount Brown Conservation Park.
Notes
The camp sites of the Mount Brown Bushcamp are spread throughout the property. Camp site 6 is closest to the trail ... the others are not. Vehicle access via Gunyah Road and then Broadview track.

............................

Please note that this water tank is in a range shadow, being on the western side of the ranges. At times during 2011 and 2012 the tank has been very low or empty. We would recommend the carrying of some extra water as a contingency (but not necessarily a full load) from Mt Arden South (reliable) or Dutchmans Stern (reliable).

You should watch this page for reports of the latest tank water level. We would also encourage hikers who have visited the campsite to record the tank water level on this forum page:
https://heysentrail.asn.au/forums/topic/eyre-depot-water/
History
2009 - The original water tank was installed with funds donated by the FoHT End to End 2 walk group (2003-2008)

2020 - Further improvements and a toilet were funded by donations from the Friends End to End 9 walk group (2014-2019)

2020 - A replacement tank was generously supplied & installed by Ben Jueken & family, from Groundwater Science Ltd.

History
Mark Gray junior built the hut and adjacent cow yards in the early 1900s, milking cows and taking the cream to Melrose, at least 10 miles away. The hut was burnt down in a bushfire in 1988. The area was known as the race course, because local lads secretly trained their horses here for the picnic races. The current hut was built around the ruins of the original hut.

Fires are not permitted in Mt Remarkable NP. Occasionally access to the Park may be restricted. Refer to the National Park SA Park Alerts webpage to check whether there are any current restrictions for Mt Remarkable National Park. https://www.parks.sa.gov.au/know-before-you-go/closures-and-alerts

Cottage sleeps up to ten people in three bedrooms (two queens and three sets of bunks). The cottage is self-contained with crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots & pans supplied. Bring your own sheets, pillows, blankets and towels.
There are 2 water tanks but they behind a padlocked gate and are not accessible to the public.
History
Originally built as a two-roomed hut, probably to accommodation shepherds working for Arthur Hardy or Sir Samuel Davenport. Hardy and Davenport were two of the first large estate landowners on this side of Mount Lofty Summit. They used the land chiefly for pastoralism and logging but also some agriculture, including the growing of vines and olives. Hardy was the first 'colonial gentleman' to build a summer house on Mount Lofty - nearby Mount Lofty House in the 1850s.
Notes
Not really suitable for through walkers as the keys have to be collected from Belair National Park.
