Enjoyed this walk. Nice people on the walk who were tourists and locals. Friendly. Did not make it to lighthouse as we ran out of time. Walked along trail to ottos of lighthouse and had to turn back. Good 47 minutes to area at fast pace. Walked back along beach which was low tide at time. Enjoyed it.

We took this walk after a big breakfast on a sunny day and it was lovely. It does have some hilly bits but it is good for all fitness levels. Lasts about 2 hours return taking it easy and stopping to watch the whales from the track. It perches over the pacific ocean at many points and features lovely view... More

Very nice for locals and tourists equally to visit. You can walk up to light house and from there, there is pathway to go all the way down to waters and reach the 'most easterly point of Australian mainland'. Parking is a bit of issue but maybe park just before the final point and you can get an hour or... More

This is a great walk. It has quite a few steps so you need to be fit or stop occasionally. It leads from the beach near the pass to the lighthouse. We spotted whales while walking. The is a nice coffee shop at the pass if you are in need of refreshments or you can have coffee at the lighthouse... More

Walk this trail and soak in the beauty of the ocean and all the beaches. It is not a very tough trail and there are benches placed around the trail.

This is an amazing trail. You stand on the most eastern tip of Australia and watch the whales go by. The trail is pretty steep but not too long. The main problem is finding parking. The parking lot at the light house is pretty small. There are other lots further down the road but they require some walking to get... More

Lovely view and a great walk but not for those unsteady on their feet. It's steep but a great opportunity to see whales along the way
