  • We walked from the main street in Airlie Beach to Honeyeater Lookout (approx 10klms return from our accomm). It took us nearly 4 hours with plenty of stops for photos and rests. It was a very hot day ...  more »
  • Easy walk up to the lookout areas, suitable for all fitness levels. Absolutely stunning views of Whitehaven beach at the top from two observation points. There are toilets at the top as well. 
  • This is a great walk for anyone interested in hiking thats not to difficult but that will have you blowing a bit. The footing is very good and the gradient is fairly gradual.
