This walk is 7 kms from the main road along a narrow but good track. The sign advertises that the walk is a 2 hour round trip and that is almost exactly what it took a pair of 60 year olds with time included to...More

This walk was definitely challenging. The shaded bush walk gave way to steep rocky paths and then rock hopping not to mention the vertical ladders. It's not for the faint hearted but it is well worth it. We took about 1 hour 10 minutes (return)...More

The road to the walk is really nice. A bit tricky for 2WD-cars with a low base. Worthwhile to do even if you don't walk the walk :) We didn't, it started raining like....... Fir a short time it seemd that we were swimming :)

Moderately strenuous hike in quiet forest to a great vista. The quiet is wonderful; the path is well-marked; the view is worth the work.
