West Head Lookout is one of the most beautiful scenic spots I’ve been to! I loved it here as there are so many different trails to choose from, to enjoy a nice walk amongst nature. I am so glad I came here!

On the national parks website, you start this walk at the Sphinx Memorial but I did it with someone who'd done it before and it was better to start at the marina. The walk is 10k, steep in places, with a fair few steps and...More
