Did the Wineglass Bay lookout, Wineglass Bay walks as well as Hazards beach & the peninsular back the car park. Great exercise with stunning views - would do it again in a heartbeat

A bit of a steep climb but thoroughly worth the effort! Incredible view of Wineglass Bay from the top. Don't forget to purchase a National Park Pass in advance.

It is a solid 35-40 minutes to the top with Coles Bay lookout about 25 minutes into the walk. Bring water and comfortable shoes as it is a steep way up. Comparable to the Giant Staircase in Katoomba NSW (but less steps). Very well paved track: 90 minute loop with great views. Saw a pregnant lady do the walk so... More

Firstly when you arrive at the car park you are greeted by the locals - ie the wallabys. I thought they would run off but they are soooo friendly. Remember to not feed them. Hence why they are so friendly. They are hoping for some food. I did get to pat them for the first time and I must say... More

A short walk they said!! Well, that may be so but it is certainly not an easy one with lots of steps. BUT, well worth the climb when you reach the top and take in the view of Wineglass Bay. Beautiful!!

First thing make sure you get your national lark pass!! Then take you time to reach this most amazing outlook When dry good fitting walking shoes will do the job which is a solid 90 minutes round trip longer if your fitness is a bit off As said though the view is worth it

Well maintained and cared for national park. Walk was a challenge in sections buta moderately fit adult will make it there and back even if it takes a little longer than the signed times.

Parks& Wildlife Tasmania has done a great job and eased the walk to the top. It takes about 45 minutes of relatively easy walking, unless you are a real 'couch potato', but then you'll be rewarded with a wonderful view over 'Wineglass Bay'. On the day when we went in the middle of winter, we hardly met anyone, but that... More

We had a beautiful walk up to the lookout with an awesome guide from Saffire . Even though we have made that trip many times before without a guide , it was great to learn new things about the whole area. a highly recommended experience if you are in the area!!
