Absolutely stunning scenery and wildflowers, this place is a must visit during the Spring months. The climb to the summit is well worth the effort, the ocean and inlet views are amazing, even saw a whale tail slapping in the bay.

This is a must-do walk if you're in the Fitzgerald River National Park. You'll need moderate fitness and some determination but the rewards are great at the top. As with any class 4 walk, take your time and you'll be fine. The 3km return walk...More

A walk partly up East Mount Barren gave us spectacular views of the coastline as well as a colourful array of wildflowers.

Dont try this walk unless you are moderately fit. It is very steep in sections, with lots a gravel/ stone on the track. Awesome views and wildlife. Will be back to do again. We took lunch with us and ate this on the summit ........More

Visited on a wet day but still found it a spectacular place. Really need a 4x4 to access all areas but the bit we saw was good. Nice facilities.

A good walk some rocky places but worth the climb. Take plenty of photos as you go up. Have waterbottle on you and once at the top, stop and soak in the views, they are breath taking. Wouldn't take 3yr and less there , bit...More
