Worth the Climb

We are glad we did the climb when we did as it is not an easy climb if one has a knee problem as of now. The view is so rewarding and many folks are on the track up and down... read more

We are glad we did the climb when we did as it is not an easy climb if one has a knee problem as of now. The view is so rewarding and many folks are on the track up and down which is relatively easy in most places. It just takes time and effort in some places more than others.... More

Good parking facilities make this most popular of walks easily accessible. The length of the walk can be extended to encompass the circular perimeter walk which give all round views. it is not arduous at all. Wineglass bay is beautiful and well worth the visit, even all the steps down!

The view is fantastic. It was a bit hard going in places going up as the path is rocky & steep but worth it.

Recently reconstructed walking track makes the 40 minute climb not quite so strenuous, but a level of fitness is needed to make the top and view Wineglass Bay from the lookout. Stunning views back across Oyster Bay during the climb. This is also the start of the walk to Wineglass Bay (about one hour) or around the headland via Wineglass... More

My girlfriend and I went here a couple of weeks ago and I will say this, the walk to the lookout is very tiring but it's so worth it. The view is amazing.

This hike which took about 1 1/2 hours round trip was strenuous in parts with gravel underfoot. But gosh what amazing scenery on the way and of course at the look out. It gives such a great perspective of the area. The weather wasn't great the day we did the hike otherwise we would have liked to have continued down... More

a hard walk to the viewpoint but it is worth the effort, not one for those with mobility issues as the terrain can be uneven

Came early to beat any people traffic and not many here at 8am. Was a steep hike, but took only 25 mins up. I am not a fitness fanactic by any means. I was puffing. The walk down to beach is alot harder, as bit longer and track not as easy as the lookout. Scenery just worth it though. If... More

This is only a fairly short walk but it does involve climbing up a steep incline. The view from the platform overlooking Wineglass bay is beautiful and worth the walk. There were families with young children making the climb so it is reasonably accessible and there are a lot of places to rest on the way up and to admire... More

Even though it wasn't the loveliest of weather, we walked it up to the lookout point. It may have even been a blessing because we weren't sweating all the way up, which we did on our way down when the clouds had all but cleared. None of the three of us girls are what one might call athletic, but we... More
