“Spectacular view”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Well worth the walk, amazing views from the top as well as on the whole walk on the Wonderland loop. If the weather is good I'd highly recommend sitting down and having a picnic lunch up the top and wandering around to find a quiet place to sit. Just make sure you follow the yellow arrows so you don't wander too faraway from the track.

“Great walk”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a great walk for people with some walking experience. A bit of climbing over small rocks and hilly in places but well worth it for the view up the top.

“Well worth the trek up”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Apparently this is one of the toughest walks for the ordinary tourist but if our 4, 6 and 7 year old could make it up and down alive, I'm sure you can too! :)

It takes about 2 hours up and 1.5 hours down. The gradient is not punishing and the warnings on the board at the Wonderland carpark are a tad too pessimistic.

“Great walk, Great view”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

A must go in Halls Gap! Walk through the grand canyon to see more fantastic rock formations! The scenic view at the pinnacle will not be a disappointment

“Fabulous and Fascinating”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Double F for this great hike up all the way to the Pinnacles, is all was worth it although is tiring but is challenging and until you reached the pinnacles try to stand at the tip of the height to feel the strong winds blowing against you as if you are flying. If you have a car, when heading back, do make sure you choose the same path as you climbed up as you may get down to another spot far away from your car and there is no taxi available...
