It's a 30 min round trip walk, and well worth the steps up to the top. We walked up for sunset, which wasn't quite as spectacular as hoped, but it was a great view and well worth the walk.

A steep walk up but well worth it for the view! Great exercise! Not for those with bad knees, obviously but if you are reasonably fit you can do this.

Amazing views; heaps faster than the 30 minute return sign would lead you to believe. Great for sunset or to work off some wine

I would definitely recommend this walk. A little steep and quite a few steps but the views at the top were amazing!

If you can power up the many stairs you are in for a panoramic treat at the top! Stunning 360 degree views! A must!

In the dying Winter light, my friends and I hurried up the steep but well kept path and stairs to catch the sunset. We were cursing ourselves as we had just had a big meal but it was so totally worth it for the spectacular...More

If you do not like climbs, then its not for you. Its 30 minute return walk where you climb up almost 15-20 mins. But the climb is worth the view. There are large rocks at top on which you can sit, relax and enjoy the...More

We did a major dash to get here for the sunset but were thwarted by the final staircase, such a steep climb. We missed it by seconds but still a really lovely view and so peaceful and quiet.
