Great views after a hard climb. Birds nesting and wallabies hiding. We reccommend breakfast at Moby Dicks before the climb.

Yes, it is a steep climb but not over challenging. The alternate option is to catch the chair lift up and down. The views are amazing. It is a spectacular part of the world.

We took the chairlift for both going up and down, but saw how perilously steep the cliff face was on the descent as we were looking away from the cliff for the first time. As you are going up you are facing the cliff and...More

Hi Gummycat. The chairlift was not operational when I was there. Bring water and plenty of rest stops as you walk up.
