World's End is located in Horton Plain National Park. You'll need to walk a few kilometres before reaching it. There is a 11-km loop that you can take. For that, you'll need proper shoes, as there are some short steep climbs in certain spots. Layer...More

Avoid this tourist trail at all costs. We got up at 4.30am to get to worlds end early but there were already at least 50 minivans in the car park disgorging their tourist hordes. The trail is beautiful but you never get away from people...More
