  • Amazing. The full walk was tough and not that rewarding. Next time we would go to the 2nd lookout the return the same way. Shorter, easier walk and better scenery. Highly recommended if you're fit'ish. It is a grade 4 walk.
  • Beautiful area, the walk up to the first look out is very easy and accessible to most people. it is a bit rocky so you need to be sure footed, but you would only need to be able to walk about 2.2 km and there are places to sit. The only bathrooms are at the viewing area so keep that in mind before heading in.
