Well worth the walk

Quite a few steps to get to the top but really great views once you arrive there. best seen on a clear and sunny day.

What an amazing walk. I continued on to do the full loop around to wineglass bay, hazards beach and back to the car park. I would highly recommend this for the able bodied. The sign says 5 hours but it only took me and another couple around 3.5. However, I wish i had spent more time on hazards beach. It... More

The best view I've ever had on my entire life. It's a decent walk up a mountain, but once at the viewing point, it takes your breath away. Well worth the walk!

Lovely view over wine glass bay shared by throngs of others. The track was 5 star making it as easy as possible for everyone. Friendly wallabies on the track. If you have the fitness...do Mt Amos and or the Hazards circuit as well.

We did the hike to Wineglass Bay Lookout. By far the most strenuous walk yet. Probably over 1000 steps and 40 minutes each way is optimistic.Even the young fit backpackers had to stop several times on the way. However, It is all worthwhile when you see the Bay. So beautiful. Sad that is was once a whaling station and the... More

One of the most stunning bays in Australia, well worth the effort. If you are unfit it may take longer - up to one and a half hours - but most fit people will complete the walk in 45 minutes or so.

It's a bit of a hike but well worth the effort, the vista is magnificent and the beach and water colours stunning. If you are an older person, like me, take your time, rest as needed but remember the water, sun screen, insect repellant and hat.

We recently did this walk up to the lookout. The tracks are in very good condition and although there are a number of steps and the walk is quite steep it is very manageable and most people should be able to do it even if you take your time. There are a number of spots you can stop and rest... More

One of the best hikes we did in Tassie because we were rewarded with that beautiful view of Wineglass Bay and beyond. Took us about 2 hours return to complete the walk including a good half an hour at the lookout to enjoy the view, eat lunch and take some photo's. Great views!
