Stunning view at the end and so much to look at along the way.

This is quite a hard walk. Take a stick. The yellow markers are not that easy to locate and follow. Could have used quite a few more of them.

Watch out for the turns to go back on the right path!
May 2021 • Couples
Parked at wonderland carpark. Grand Canyon was closed off due to safety issues with the stairs there. However, still good to be able to see what I think was most of it really, as we also walked right up to the barrier on the other end of the stairs.

The walk was incredible. Silent Street was awesome.

Reached the Pinnacle in under 1 hr from the carpark (not inc time to walk into the Grand Canyon and then back due to the closure).

Unfortunately we got lost on our way back and ended up going down the track that lead to Halls Gap caravan park!! Didn’t even realise we missed the turn, there did not seem to be a sign?

Luckily we met a wonderful group who offered to drive one of us, as well as one of another group of people who had made the same mistake!, back to the car park.

It was a fortunate error, as the walk down this path was nice too (much easier to walk down than up that one!!). Saw a wallaby next to the path, not too concerned about us being there.

Challenging walk and climb for breathtaking views
Mar 2021 • Family
Well worth the walk
Spectacular views
Get up early beat the rush
Wear good shoes as there’s some difficult and challenging climbs along the way
Pay attention to the yellow markers on rocks showing you the direction
Take water
No toilets
Took us 1hr each way (I am not not a fitness person)

Spectacular experience
Feb 2021
I expected a difficult hike and I was right. We started our walk from the Halls gap caravan park, and walked up to the pinnacles.
We had lunch at the top, and enjoyed the stunning view of mountains and lakes below us. Be careful where you walk, and watch your children closely, because there are plenty of cliff edges that are not barricaded.

We then continued our walk to the venus baths, and back to the caravan park. In total this took us less than 4 hours.

People were doing this walk in thongs, trackies and dresses. I think that the level of difficulty is not certain to all, and I would suggest wearing more appropriate sport clothes.

We went in February and it was hot, so bring enough water.

Amazing loop walk from Halls Gap. Quite strenuous and lots of steps. Quite busy on the top and a drone annoyed me. I thought no drones allowed in national parks. Spectacular views, in short: loved it.

Oh heck

Ok. So here’s how the day went. Parked at Wonderland Carpark (mid difficulty) and my gosh it wasn’t easy. Made it to the top after about 90 mins and the view is spectacular. Unluckily for us, the signage at the top is non existent, and as we began our descent; we realised “um where is everyone”? After asking other “climbers” we realised that we were descending toward the Venus baths (difficult) — that downward walk is BRUTAL. We ended up at Halls Gap and then had to walk from Halls Gap back to our car at Wonderland (a 4km uphill walk).
The view is great but the signage needs to be clearer about the way down.
Heck. My legs are sore.

Poor signposting on roads
Mar 2021
We drove from Stawell to come to the Sundial carpark. It wasn't until we were well past Halls Gap that there was a sign saying that the Sundial carpark needed to be accessed from a particular road (which we had already passed and which had no reference to Sundial on the sign).

We had the official pamphlet but the map makes it look like you can get there another way - but you hit a one way road.

We never got there.

If you are going, make sure that you know the route or stop in Halls Gap to find out.

The hike
Mar 2021 • Friends
I enjoyed the stunning views throughout the clunb. The bug boulders are amazing.
It will be nice to have a ice cream van at the car park.
