Its a long steady upward haul right from the beginning. Great to hear the whip birds all the way up. A bit of a scramble at the end but all in all, a nice day hike for those who are reasonably fit.

We did the Mount Warning climb to catch the first sunlight in Australia. Got to the carpark at 4:00am and climbed the long and steep track to the summit, an easy 2hrs if you are fit. Seeing the first light, and staying for the sunrise...More

This moderate level hike is wonderful. A steady incline all the way to the last +100m push to the top where you will encounter a steep section with a chain. It's a 4.4km trek which will take you a 3.5 to 5hr return trip depending...More
