  • Hike up was easier compared to walking down as there are small pebbles on few parts of the path. Since it was winner during my hike, the wind could be rather strong. The Carpark area was quite hard...  more »

  • The drive to the parking from main road can be a bit rough but short nonetheless. The trail is an easy walk to the viewpoint of Mt Abrupt. The trail also leads further to Mt Sturgeon if you are more adventurous. Along the way, one can see a lake at the foot of Mt Abrupt and also a lot of grass trees along the way (I believed it's called that).
  • The hike was 1.2 km one way and takes about 15min if you walk fast. The view at the sunrise was amazing
  • Lovely short walk with great views at the top.
  • Amazing Aussie national Park, Great Landscapes
  • Excellent walk up to the peak
