This is easily one of the best day walks for people with little/ average fitness. The walk is so easy as the path is mainly level, mostly gravel, some boardwalk and sandstone, the steps up and down are wide and easy to climb, the scenery...More

A few people claimed the walk was treacherous with steep slopes and I was worried. But no fear, there is space between you and the edge almost everywhere, you would have to want to fall over really. Great pacing and lots to see on this...More

The path was good and not too many people. We could clearly see Bruny Island and Mt Wellington. The wrens teased the camera delightfully

Breath taking views , the water was soooo blue, worth a look, i think that you can do a speed boat tour which would be amazing to do, i just went to the look out.

Walked to the cape in variable weather but it was worth it. The track is well maintained and you could hear the seals barking from the lookout.

We walked Stormlea to Cape Raoul via the marked track on a drizzly day. The track is well marked and easily completed with magnificent view of Cape Raoul. The columnar buttresses rise out of the water 100's of metres right next to the track. Well...More

A short drive from Port Arthur historic site. Well worth the drive, stunning views from high up and with a little voluntary exercise, even better views can be had.

This is a great day walk! It does get quite steep in some areas and can be a bit challenging in parts but it is well worth it for the views at the end. Definitely bring plenty of food and water and take your time....More

It's a strenuous walk. It's a 6-hour walk including the return, which is particularly challenging because you actually go up. I consider myself physically fit, yet on the return trip I was near exhaustion. But it's a beautiful walk. First, you walk through a forest....More

The Cape Raoul lookout is more than 20 minutes, probably about 40 minutes but is worth the walk. Depends on the fitness of the 70 year olds- I am 69 and have no trouble, being a fairly regular walker
