The pinnacle was an amazing view. We walked from the wonderland carpark to the pinnacles. The surrondings are amazing. We went via the canyon first which was a good idea as all you want to on the way back is to get to your car. The walk is very strenuous but it has a few rest areas. I would advise... More

Completed the Wonderland Loop Walk heading off from Halls Gap via Venus Baths to Splitters falls (lovely spot). Trekked on via the longer route which flattened out nicely to the Pinnacle. Brilliant views of Halls Gap & the local lakes. Completed the Wonderland loop back to Halls Gap which was 12km in 3.5 hours.

The reviews which say you need to be fit and young etc.. are seriously off the mark. If you have at least 2-3 hours spare you can easily do the walk. Yes its uphill and yes there are steps but the work that has gone into this walk is seriously remarkable. The people who made this walk what it is... More

I walked up Mt Rosea then after hiking back down to Rosea car park walked on to the Pinnacle via Sundial Carpark. I must say I greatly preferred Mt Rosea in all respects. The Pinnacle was still a nice walk though. It is very easy but it is rocky for quite a few stretches. Anyone with any level of fitness... More

There's heaps of lookouts in the Grampians and many within easy reach of a car park etc. The Pinnacle requires a substantial amount of walking which makes it a completely different experience and one that is rewarding. We intended to walk the Pinnacle Loop via the Grand Canyon and descend via Wonderland track but missed the turn off. The start... More

The walk to the pinnacle was amazing, so well planned and so interesting going through the rocks. We did the extended route which was beautiful and the views were outstanding. One of my favourite places we've been so far

Its a good place to visit if you are a fit walker. Otherwise i would not suggest to go as the steps are rock and steep. Only for the fit and not suitable for kids and older people
