Make sure you buy a National Parks Pass on the way in or you'll have to turn around! Was an amazing walk, a little more challenging than I was expecting, but easily doable if you take your time. Wouldn't recommend for people who have trouble...More

Great views from the top and welcome photo ops on the way up to catch your breath. Allow about and hour and a half. Friendly wallaby at the top allows seflies but don't feed her!

The lookout was lovely, however the park website does not inform you of closures. We arrived, anticipating hiking to the actual bay, and were disappointed when we got there and found out that it was closed due to construction. Very frustrating

Only a 30 minute walk. Excellent views Not suitable if you have a disability as it is just a walking track

PSA: the walk from the car park to the lookout is constant uphill (lol). A worthwhile walk to the lookout, unfortunately The Hazards route is closed due to maintenance.

The Lighthouse Lookout would be your best bet. If you drop into the visitors centre on your way in the staff are very helpful.

The only ticket you need to buy is the one to get into the national park. You buy it at the information centre on the road in You don't need another ticket to do the walk. Enjoy
