The path is an incline all of the way with several sections of steps, hewn from boulders, to reach the lookout. Once you are at the lookout the view is spectacular and makes the climb worthwhile. You need to be reasonably fit to tackle this...More

Trail allows 40mins or 1.5hrs return but we did it in under 1hr including photography time. We are under 30s with moderate fitness. The views are well worth it and its a nice walk, some stairs but overall can do with minimal effort. Some of...More

Start early to make the best of the track to the lookout. The national parks have done a great job on the access to the lookout and surrounding walks

The walk is well worth it with a spectacular view at the top. It's what I would call a grade 2 walk - well marked path with a few steps. It is uphill but kids could easily walk it.

Tick that off the buckets list, busy but walk easier than I thought it would be. Easy 40 minutes up and 25 down. Parking can be hard unless you are lucky and grab a spot as someone is leaving. Stopped at the Lodge for a...More

Well worth the gentle walk up, well paved with hand rails in relevant sections. Fun for kids to explore and find walking sticks .

The only ticket you need to buy is the one to get into the national park. You buy it at the information centre on the road in You don't need another ticket to do the walk. Enjoy
