“Always a good walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

We tackled this as our first family walk & the worst bit was walking up to the start of the track from where we parked!!
The walk itself was enjoyable & not too challenging. There were places where the kids could do a bit of adventuring up different paths & a great tree which had fallen over some time ago to play on. Nice view from the top & a quick wander back down. Well worth it if you've got an hour spare :)

“Good walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Our first time up the hill - wide and well maintained track for all age groups. Nice view from the top but partly restricted by trees. Very popular and a great spot for a picnic.

“Worth The Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

First time up the hill, well worth the walk up for the veiw, trees could do with a bit of thinning out to tidy up the pathways. Very popular attraction and for Hanmer the best part is that it is FREE.

“make the effort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

this 'easy' walk has a really steep section at the beginning, but my 79 y.o. mum made it just fine by resting on the several chairs and taking the paved bit slowly
the view from the first seat, and from the top are just great -
