This place is a bit of an icon and, according to authorities, over 8,000 people do it each year. Bushwalkers will feel undernourished if they haven't partaken of its delights. The listed time of 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours by NPWS is loose. Aged...More

3-4 hour challenging walk that had my heart racing on the way up and my legs shaking on the way down. Stunning views that were well worth the walk! Bring a drink bottle and a snack, you'll need them!

Driving to the pigeon house mountain. I drove a Hyundai Accent. But I wouldn't drive it there in wet weather you could possibly get stuck in a 2wd. As you drive on an unsealed road (dirt) for over 10km one way. I wouldn't drive this...More

We went on a hike with Tom from Region X in Batemans Bay, who knows the walk well and was a great guide. Unfortunately my arthritic knees began to complain at the steep steps and climb in the first half of the walk, so I...More
