  • On the way through the park you will see Frenchmans Peak and it is an incredible sight. If you have the urge ( we didn't) you can climb to the top.  more »
  • Such a great hike! I recommend it. Make sure you have good hiking shoes and a coast because it gets pretty windy at the top of the mountain.  more »

  • Great views from the top. Steep climb in some areas so you must be reasonably fit. Just follow the signs to the peak. We went in summer but I can just imagine the wildflowers in spring!
  • Frenchmans Peak This is a climbable mountain or peak – but only on dry days. It is never going to be easy as it is very steep and a grade 4 hike but well worth it for the views. We didn’t climb it this time because wet weather as imminent and that would have been dangerous, but it is still worth a good look from all angles as the granite that comprises this monolith appears to change colour depending on what the sun is doing. It is one of the first things you see in Cape Le Grand
