I have been hiking a lot, but what impressed me a lot of here was the fact that at the end of the walkthrough one reaches the seaside! The landscape looks unreal, from another era, and the beach is probably the nicest one I have ever seen. Super recommended, just watch out the sandstorms at the beach! P.s. Amazing is... More

The view was stunning after the tiring hike. The weather was rather warm on our day and multiple breaks were necessary.

I have lost count of the times I have climbed up to the lookout over the years but I never tire of the view. The track is in fantastic condition even after the recent bad weather.

The path can be steep but it's not as difficult as I had imagined - just be sure you have good tread on your shoes, especially if it's raining like when I went. The view is worth the sweat equity and you'll be glad you did it.

The walk around the lighthouse offered the most panoramic view imaginable of the HAZARDS and of WineGlass Bay. Not a difficult climb for the children. The ruggedness of the whole place was awe-inspiring. Particularly impressed with the deep, inky-black surroundings and the sounds of seals emanating from a nearby isolated island rock.

Great walk, many sorts of people on the walk when we did it. Young and old, fit and couch potato. Many stops on the way, beautifully made chairs of different materials, Coles bay look out on the way and wineglass lovely as always. We did it in half the recommend time but if you took your time or had young... More

Was a good trek up to lookout, good track. View was worth it. I would recommend doing early morning to avoid the crowds.

We struck a perfect day and did the trek up to the lookout. What a beautiful view. We got lots of photos and could have sat there for a while. The younger members of our group walked back down to the carpark, and the fitter ones did the 11km trek down to the wineglass bay beach, across the strip to... More

It's amazing, but go first thing in the morning to avoid crowds of people with cameras, selfie sticks and worse - eg a drone even.

My siblings and I made the climb up. I was pleasantly surprised to find the trail well designed and not as difficult to climb as I imagined. The scenery and views on the assent were beautiful. Unfortunately the weather wasn't cooperating as it was very cloudy. We could still see the bay but I imagine the water would have been... More
