The trek to get to the lookout is doe able even if you are only partially fit as long as you only have mild knee issues but, it is worth it

A lovely short walk to the lookout (about 30 minutes depending on your fitness) but does include quite a few well maintained steps.

I am not the fittest person by any means, so it took me a bit longer than advertised. The last 400m or so is the toughest, as it's mostly steps, and the steepest part of the ascent. Though I was a little underwhelmed by the...More

The walk to the lookout is easy enough if you are fairly fit; I wouldn't recommend it if you have any health issues. The path is well maintained and easy to navigate with some seats along the way for a rest. Once at the lookout...More

We sat on the rocks and shared the most amazing sunset I have ever seen. Pure and natural and so romantic.

Very skilful trail construction - pink hued stonework and well constructed, making the steep climb quite comfortable. You can just go up and back for the view but you should continue down to Wineglass bay and walk on the beach - stunning!

After driving in a RV for a couple of days, this was the best way to stretch our legs. There was a little resistance from my teenage daughter however we decided to do it together eventually! It is spectacular! An event not to be missed!...More
