We decided to do the walk despite our (mostly 'my') unfitness, and hubby's unwellness (getting over a very heavy cold). It was quite a steep walk including (from what I've read) over 600 steps. Lots of wonderful things to see on the way and it's a really pleasant walk (despite the puffing and panting) - views of Coles Beach on... More

Everybody should do this walk. It does get steep and there are a number of steps, but take your time, it id definitely worth it.

The walk to the top wasnt an easy walk, but as long as you have some fitness it is achiveable. The track has lots of stone stairs, so make sure you have appropriate footware. All this said, it was all well worth it, the view was wonderful

It is far more gear for plenty of visitors than it was when I had my first visit over 30 year ago but still worth the climb.

Great view of wineglass bay and surrounds. Not really a walk for the faint hearted. I'm of medium fitness and managed ok but a few folk along the way were struggling. Worth it, but take your time if you don't do any walking. We went down to the bay and then back up - bit of fun and saw some... More

Really good family walk. We saw a wallaby on the track and there is something to look at on your climb up to the top. The rock formations are interesting for kids and the view of Coles Bay is also breath taking. The walk up to the top is steep and I would be doubtful that anyone with knee issues... More

This is our third visit over 30 years and during this time they have updated the path to make it as safe as possible because it is so popular. I remember scrambling over large boulders and getting scratched by trees. Not so, now.The view at the end of the walk is still spectacular, whatever the weather, although on a sunny... More

The courteous cervice at the Park Visitor Centre was excellent. The walk up to the Wineglass Bay look-out was easy and the view simply breath-taking! But think about the walk down to the Beach - a bit slippery going down and quite a challenge climbing back up. But the beach itself is wonderful - pure white sand, emerald water and... More
