The walk up Tomaree Head was steep most of the time. You need to be physically fit to comfortably claim up within half an hour. The view at the top is worth it all. You get 360 degrees view of the ocean and wow! It's breathtaking!

The walk return took us about 1 hour and was very easy. The views on the way up and at the too were spectacular. When looking down we saw three sharks feeding and whales.

This is a very short walk, maybe only about 15-20 min up. But can get a little steep for some. Once on top you get a great view of the bay and out to the ocean. We managed to spot a few whales in the distance, so if during whale season maybe take some binoculars.

NIce way of relaxing and taking in the landscape with the sea in Nelson Bay.

Take your camera for this one. It is a fairly long walk uphill but with plenty of rest areas and seats along the way. Great historical features from WW2. The old gun emplacements are worth the walk itself. If you do a bit of research before you do the walk it will prove all the more interesting. The views from the top on a clear day are just amazing. I would recommend doing the walk on a sunny clear day if you can. There are many fitness people who run up and down here as well. Take your time and don't forget to take plenty of water.
