  • You can do portions of the walk, or a lot of it but don't forget your camera. It has gorgeous views of the Ocean  more »
  • This is a wonderful place to hike, the views are amazing and the track is well kept and well sign posted. My first ever hike and I had no problems at all.  more »
  • A great place to experience, just pick the right time weather wise. I did it in Summer with my mrs, we loved it. My highlight above seeing such stunning views and remote coastline was definitely the animals. We had the opportunity to see Koalas in the wild only meters from our camp, as well as echidna"s twice, lots of birds and quite a few snakes (just be mindful as you walk) along with many other local wildlife. The camps were great but did fill up quickly most of the time so make sure you book ahead of time. We had a hiking 2 man tent and our packs and had plenty of space around us as well as our own space. We loved the lighthouse visit and seeing some history as well as the natural environment. We did the entire hike in 5 days as opposed to the 8, which for hikers is very doable or people of relative fitness. It truly is something you have to see, we drove the GOR after and it was just totally different to seeing it from the walk; get out and enjoy it.
