  • A mesmerising place with a recently updated walking track, it's just under 5kms to walk one way.
  • Great spot, sadly some parts are inaccessible to the sensible due to risk of falling rocks. The track to get out there is currently getting some renovation but it's pretty good at the moment. I would definitely recommend the extra walk over to Tunnel Cave, as well as the lookout ~500m up the Cape Raoul Track.
  • The tracks were perfect, made our walk easy and safe. Only took us 1hour 15min each way with a short stop at the lookout overlooking the break, we were cutting a reasonable pace although my girlfriend was lagging, it might have taken 2h if we went at her pace.
  • it smelled really funny i wouldnt recomend the smell
  • Rugged Tasmania - great hiking
