Top hike. It brought new challenges to me, but that’s what made it so much fun. Climbing on rocks and passing thru narrow caves makes this challenge more enjoyable. Totally worth it!

Lots of variety packed into 11km, a long walk on the beach, rock scrambles, lots of climbs up and down rolling sandhills with scrubby gums, wattle, grass trees and in spring lots of tiny paper daisies. Many opportunities to glimpse the ocean once you turn inland. Well marked. Bonus for indigenous waymakers and interpretation.

We really enjoyed this track! Great to see it so well maintained and very little rubbish which is refreshing. Definitely will go back!

never expected to see a lobster!

The climb to cathedral peak was a great challenge. Very few people on the trails. The view was incredible with the setting sun. Will be back soon to explore more of this incredible place.

Of note, be safe on the roads leading up to it. Pack a torch as sun sets fast in winter. Always make sure you have enough water and bring a map or compass just in case.

It was really beoutefull. Culd have better signs of direction at some crossings

Nice trail! Doesn’t take full 3 hours

A fun experience. Most caves are priced, but the surrounding area is beautiful and free to hike.

Track well maintained with nice work on the bike trail part of the walk. Not overly strenuous with it taking just over 2 hours to do the walk

The caves themselves are incredible. On top of that there are several hiking tracks around the area (you can grab all of the info at the ticket desk on the hikes there). The Jenolan river walk is easy, incredibly peaceful and opportunities to see wildlife like rock wallabies and platypus. You can continue on the the Working Waters and make your way down to a hydroelectric hut with a lovely picnic area just near the damn wall.

Great trail. Only few km from town of Denmark. Vistas at top are breathtaking. Changing flora and a bit of physical agility make this trail addictive, did 6 times!

Lots of scrambling and climbing the rocks. I did southern and northern loop in 7 hours. The view was amazing but not so magnificent I would say. Few spots of missing emergency marks. I would have easily gotten lost without GPS.

very picturesque views

Did the Wells Cave track 2 days ago and I'm already planning to go back out!
Never before have I done a hike involving rock climbing and going through a cave! Incredible! Not easy, but so worth it.

A nice circuit that goes through eucalpyt forest and some pockets of dry rainforest, with a swimming hole (just off the main track) at the end.

In summer.....watch for snakes! Crazy climb up Jawbone. Even crazier hiking across the top. Views are pretty good and sides of ridge are not too dangerous. However, definitely not for children. I wouldn’t attempt the full circuit in one go as is quite arduous unless you are fit or experienced. Have good shoes and plenty of water in summer as the heat seems to sit on the backside of the mountain.

Uneven and rocky, can get narrow at times. Sheltered from the sun on hot days. some rock formations to explore, a nice short walk if you have young kids or just starting out.

This track has been closed for some time due to extensive damage from tropical cyclone Debbie. It’s advised to check with Qld Parks and Wildlife first. (8/1/18)
