Have the gelato, get an amazing view. The walk up or down is easy and great. We saw sharks and rays, turtles from above.

Really nice walk to see the sunrise from Australia's most easterly point. Well marked and maintained trail. Fair amount of stairs. Very popular with locals for fitness. Enjoyed watching some juvenile eagles fly around Wategos beach this morning.

Striking views of the coast and ocean, great spots to view dolphins, whales, rays, turtles and other sea life. The coastal walk is a loop, one side is all coast and ocean, on the other side you pass through tropical forest. Take time for refreshments...More

You could walk down to the main beach where the Hotel is head to the car park and you will also see the sunset that wouldn’t be anymore than a 15min walk.
