Hiked down to Roberts point and really enjoyed it, the start begins with a bit of road but then turns into the rain forest, lots of nature around you and a nice distance of 8km return. It would of been nice to have distance markers...More

The walk through this amazing forest is not to be missed if you're in the area. It's about a 45 minute walk from the start of the trail to the prize at the end. The amazing rapids where the tides meet. We were lucky enough...More

This is a “must do” on any visit to the Sunshine Coast if you have good mobility and enjoy the outdoors! The trails are well kept, the rapids take your breath away, and if you go early in the day there is an amazing little...More

Truly one of the must see wonders on the coast, standing waves and whirlpools delight visitors, caution, no guardrails, and rocks may be slippery.

Enjoyed a nice hike in the woods to the rapids. Wear good footwear and bring water and snacks. The rapids were interesting to see but we enjoyed also looking in the tide pools, watching seals and saw a sea lion in the rapids.. When you're...More

I've always wanted to see the Skookumchuk Narrows, and that possibly coloured my appreciation of the whole experience. For me, it had meant a lot of ducks to line up, and so I was pretty flooded with happiness to finally get there and see it....More

This is a beautiful 50 min - 1.5 hr walk on a well maintained path through a lush forest canopy. Hiking boots not required, but solid footwear a help. The trail is undulating - more so than I anticipated. It was a tough slog for...More

No benches but lots of big rocks,logs and soft moss to sit on. We had a small backpack with us and took a piece of foam to sit on. We brought our lunch and ate it at the rapids which gave us a good rest before heading back... More
