  • Our youngest is 5 so we just did a little of the hike to get a bit of a feel for it before turning back. It’s still worth it to go to the car park for the views from there and the lovely carving and e...  more »

  • A world class location with an excellent easily followed, well made track to the summit. The views are well worth the climb! Take plenty of water, some snacks, and choose comfortable footwear with gripping power to avoid slips (boots that can provide some ankle support would be perfect). Check the weather, and dress appropriately (the best would be to carry a light rucksack with a few extra items of clothing and your supplies - a rewarding hot beverage from a thermos flask would not go amiss either). It gets windy and cold up there, especially around half way up, where for a short way the trail leaves the bush and walkers are exposed to the elements.
  • Took us two hours to get up and had sore legs the next couple days. Path/steps in good condition. Stayed at the top for 1 hour, just admiring the landscape. Loved it. Will come back in Spring for the wildflowers.
  • A fantastic walk, not to be missed if you're in the area or nearby. Indeed you will find it pretty tough if you don't have a moderate level of fitness. Views are well worth it though and a proper sense of achievement once you reach the top.
  • It's not a technical climb, or even a difficult one. It just takes a little time. But when you get to the top, the view is magical and the weather changes rapidly making it a beautiful place in the world to sit and watch the day go by. In winter it sometimes gets some snow, which is a novelty. Well worth the visit
  • Wow. We are so lucky to have a loving creator, who just new how much we would enjoy such beauty.
