Great way to spend a Saturday. Walk was moderate in exercise and easy if you took your time. Going from watego beach it’s all up hill which makes returning easy.

Walking the trail is reasonably easy but not without effort. Crispy air and beautiful scenery. Also enjoy the different plants along the way. Once at the top, try to spot whale or dolphins. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Quite a step walk but we were lucky to see whales and about 40 dolphins going past. Such a great place with amazing views. Parking is not the best though.

Great walk - saw lots of dolphins playing in the surf. Others had seen sharks in the water half an hour before

Some level of fitness is required here. Just amazing and totally worth it when you hit the lookout. if you are lucky which we were you will see the whales playing and dolphins surfing.
