“Easy climb for great views”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The climb to the top is reasonably easy and the views from the top are very rewarding - especially towards the Spit and Fingal Bay. We stayed over an hour watching whales close by.

“Phenomenal Views”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Amazing views along the way, and at the top, make this moderately challenging walk well worth the effort! You also get to soak in the atmosphere of beautiful flora along the way.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

What a hike! Lots of nice rest spots and the beautiful seas breeze. Kept stopping to check out the view and when we got to the top - the view was absolutely beautiful and worth the climb! Spent about an hour just taking in the view from all angles. Well worth it!!

“Great walk!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was a great walk with rewarding views. Bit of a hard climb in the humidity, but well worth it. There appeared to be many others who were enjoying the experience on the same day I did the walk.

“Great views, good excercise”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Enjoyed the entire walk up, a little strenous but some good excercise whcih makes the beer taste better when you get back down. Views are amazing and well worth the effort of climb.

Watch for Kookaburus and lizards while walking the area.
