You can start the Pinnacle walk from Halls Gap township, but my husband and I opted to take the short drive to Wonderland Carpark and start the walk from there, saving us about 2 hours walking total. Overall the walk is amazing. The 1st part goes through the Grand Canyon, with some stunning rock formations (although it does involve some rock-hopping). The middle part of the walk follows a well formed path and steps gradually uphill through bushland, whilst the last section, through "Silent Street", involves walking through an interesting narrow rocky canyon, and then up a rocky section to the absolutely stunning views at the Pinnacle. The walk is about 4km return and involves a consistent uphill climb on the way up, with some rockhopping involved. We saw quite a few children quite comfortably completing the walk, although you would need to keep a close eye on them at the summit! You also need to keep a close eye on the yellow arrows, especially at the summit, to ensure you stay on the path. I would imagine the rocks could get quite slippery during or after rain. Overall a stunning walk, with the sublime views and interesting rock formations well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

A new surprise around every corner: waterfalls, canyons, spectacular views. Worth every step - go after/during rain to get the most benefit.

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.

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.
