Go at first light

We arrived at 6.15am in time for first light and for our whole walk did not see another sole, it was magical.

Visited in Jan 2015 with Partner. I am 50 and moderately fit. We attempted the entire track which was regretful. If you are an avid hiker, then it is recommended, but definitely NOT for those who just want some photos on Facebook or enjoy some scenic views. After about 30mins walk, everything is the Same and quite boring. And because... More

Even if you are moderately unfit this is an easy walk. Fantastic views. All board walk, try to do the walk in good weather otherwise you will not see much. It gets cold here in Winter

A spectacular walk for a family + grandparents... 2-3 hours walk depending upon fitness. A few steeper rocks to negotiate over a spur. Can definitely appreciate that the walk is weather dependent!

Easy circuit with an every changing view. Make sure you take some water and wear some solid shoes as some of the sections are uneven..... Still wonder how the lady went in heels!

Dove Lake walk is a must. We left early at 7am (5 min drive and only 2 other cars in car park on Easter Saturday - better than shuttle bus) and we were all alone for 2 hours (took us 2.5 hours exactly with a 10 and 12 year old). They absolutely loved it too and we stopped a lot... More

Beautiful walk. Most should do this walk in around 2hrs. There are some more difficult sections which may pose problems for people with knee problems. There is resting places along the way a couple with tables so taking a flask and some bikkies would be a great idea. From the carpark if you start your walk on the left side... More

We had a sunny days with no wind, spectacular for photos and lovely reflections. The walk is not hard and except for a few steeper sections is fairly flat, with views around every corner. Take your camera, warm clothes and walking shoes. Takes a couple of hours to fully enjoy the scenic stops...
