We walked up to the lookout which was a little walk. Glad we had walking boots on as it can get a bit steep. The views at the top were amazing. We then decided to walk to the beach which is quite a long and sometimes slippery walk downhill. All I can say it, the walk is well worth it.... More

Ample parking and easy drive to the start of the walking track (be sure to pay the park fee prior to entering the park, you need to pay this at the Parks and Wildlife Information office just prior to entering the park). The walk to the look out is about 30-40 mins, but take it at your own pace (moderate... More

Despite the drizzle and cold, we did the ~45 min climb which isn't an easy one for everyone I must say! The climb was a little steep, with many pebbled/rough areas through the bush trail, so take care not to slip and good walking shoes are a must. By the end of the walk, we had removed all our coats,... More

This view is spectacular, an easy walk up a good path and you will be rewarded with a very beautiful spot. Can be very busy at times so my top would be to go earlier.

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.
