The walk starts at the recreation park at the bottom of the hill. The walk takes about 2 hours up and then the loop back to Halls Gap. You are rewarded with amazing views, beautiful scenery along the way and stunning flowers.

This ones fairly easy to reach (still recommend some decent footwear) and you get a good view over Halls Gap. Good photo opportunities and there’s parking at the start. Go on, give it a go!
