Mt Banks was named by the explorer, George Caley who climbed Mt Banks in November 1804.
Mt Banks is a located on the northern edge of the Gross Valley about 7 kilometres from Mt Tomah.
A track leads up to the trig station at the summit but views are limited.
Excellent views up & down the Gross Valley and across the Explorers Range to Mt Tomah can be had by climbing Mt Banks' exposed slopes & pagodas nearer to the Gross Valley.
Extreme care should be taken - some of the cliffs are 500 metres high.
