  • Worth the trip up there. Nice views. You need a fairly good level of fitness. Can be very sloppy in the rain. Wear good shoes.  more »
  • Up in Kuranda visiting some of the local attractions Barron Gorge, Barron Falls and were told about the Glacier Rock Lookout once you arrive at the car park its only a 50 metre walk. Not a wide angle ...  more »
  • An amazing view that is awesome (in its true sense) as it is impossible to realise just how vast the view is.  more »

  • Fantastic hike from Speewah Camp Ground to Glacier Rock. Not too challenging though quite muddy after the recent rains and well worth it for the view from Glacier Rock!
  • As a very new (and older) hiker (think couch potato this time last year) this was an incredibly challenging hike. We took about 4 hours (9kms according to FitBit) from Stoney Creek all the way to Glacier Rock and back. The track is rough - lots of rocks and rainforest tree roots to navigate. The view is awesome, but be realistic before you attempt it. Take plenty of water & snacks, take your time, and if it’s been raining think about using sticks to help you balance. We swam at the Stoney Creek causeway when we finished - felt so good to be in the cold fresh mountain water.
  • Incredible hike with an amazing sunrise view. Not too difficult and even finishes at a swimming spot. Paradise!
  • Big hike bring lots of water so worth the hike
  • Great day, great company.
