Highly recommend, I would personally start from Orford early morning and walk north, and aim for an afternoon ferry, the reason being ferry does not start till a fair while into the day, some of the best coast near sydney

You can't come to Uluru and not do this trail. It's marked at the Uluru Base Trail and closes in hot temperatures. Definitely recommend giving yourself at least 3 hours (even for the fit!) and finishing before 11am when the temperature increases.

I only made it to the first lookout as the rest of the trail closes at 11AM due to heat and sun exposure. You do get a great view of Kata Tjuṯa from the short walk to the first lookout!

The most famous walk in Sydney for a good reason. A must if you're in Sydney for any length of time.

I was surprised by the length and amazing views that this easy trek provided! Definitely easy for almost anyone and you get a true feel for the magnitude of Kata Tjuṯa. Highly recommend!

Beautiful walk. Busy but very rewarding with coastal views. Done this in November 2016. It is sunny and hot. Take plenty of sunscreen and water.

Great half day out! lots of trails for all skill levels. Although could do with some black obstacles.

This walk is beautiful. Plenty of different terrains which include beach walking, sand, rocks, wood platforms, bushland etc. I suggest you put this one on your bucket list

A great walk with amazing views at the top to reward you for your efforts. It's not an overly difficult walk but the trail does get a little harder near the top.

It's a really nice hike.

stunning view and perfect if you're looking for a little workout during enjoying nature

Great hike around and over Mt. Cooke in a loop.
Full loop Distance 11km
Moderate to Easy - but caution on the open Granite rock face if WET is very SLIPPERY
Parked cars on gravel road close to base, then walked northerly direction back along the same gravel road that we drove in on and then further around the base to the Bibulmun Track Hut, then followed then Bibulmun Track up and over Mt Cooke and down along the Bibulmun Track to the gravel road to the parked cars.

Spectacular walk. Relentless climb up to Mt Eliza, but brilliant alpine moor walking on top. Some serious rock hopping as you approach the summit block with a non technical climb with some exposure.

I have also done it as part of the Mt Anne circuit, possibly the best high alpine walk in Australia

I missed it/../

Fantastic trail, I love it

Has a beautiful start!! Many spots to enjoy some very scenic views. Will try from palm beach next time.
