Uphill, uphill!! If you are quiet, you will get a great of seeing several local reptiles, large spotted monitor and fast skink the size of a blue tongue. Lots of birds too... Lots of athletic runners powering up this mountain. Take water and binoculars to whale watch. Great views!

Getting up to the summit is a nice workout but the views everywhere you look the views are spectacular. Well worth it!

Loved the place. The waters of Port Stephens are crystal clear and surround Tomaree Head. The park is very well set up and exploring some of the WWII gun emplacements was good. The climb to the lookout is well thought out and the views WOW!

easy trail walk, about 1K with stairs and steep hills. It is completely doable for any size. and once you get to the top the views are so very worth the walk up!

The ferries are great for getting round the harbour, they are very regular and you can hop on and off at different place's,on a sunny day there is nothing better than sailing round the harbour.
