Loved to costal section. Beautiful ocean views with palm jungles. The inland half was just a gravel road, kind of boring. The upside is the second half is pretty flat. If you have the energy, I’d take the same coastal trail back to the car park instead.

Good walk, not too challenging, a couple of hills and a relatively long track. Well marked most of the way. Would happily do this walk again.

Great walk with some distant hills that give a good cardio workout. peaceful. Great training spot for harder walks/hikes.

Dog walk is awesome

Good hike with amazing views. However beware of snakes.

It was a lovely little hike this weekend. We made our way to Curtis Falls and then did the Lower Creek Circuit. It worked out being exactly 3km.

Very pleasant trail with lots of visual interest. Moderately challenging.

I did this run without the additonal Chiltern path up and back and it was 12km on the dot. The Duck Ponds track is a long uphill when entering from the West Head side, and the down hill from the top of the Central track is long and cruisy back to the NP gate.

This is a fabulous walk but I am not sure why it is rated moderate- it’s hard. Highly recommended.

Great view at the top. Sometimes hard to get a good park on the holidays. Moderately demanding going up. Nice and shady the whole way.

Great place to hike, steep in areas, be sure to call up first and book as they lint the number of entrants to the area. It’s a park reserve for protected wildlife, you’ll need a key code to get past the gate.

Absolutely amazing views.. relatively easy going and plenty of wildlife. Highly recommend this hike.

road biking

I picked road biking because my friend I decided to give the Lake Manchester loop a go with our drop bar cyclocross / gravel bikes. It was our first visit here and we were unsure of what to expect. Certainly all he photos we had seen excited us of the prospect. We set off with the first climb up past the dam wall to find a fantastic view over the lake. The first km or so was rather picturesque and easy then the climbs started.. they usually don’t bother us because we are actually regular mountain bikers.. we did realise before long however that the gearing on our bikes was to high for the climbs.. especially my friends Giant TCX cyclocross bike.. my Trek Checkpoint gravel bike was more suitable but still tough going with the narrower tyres giving less traction than required. Even though we bike a hiked some of the steeper hills the scenery around the lake made it all worthwhile. So in summary if you want to ride this loop an MTB is definitely the best option to climb the hills and probably more fun on the descents. We just thought it worthwhile to let other gravel bike riders know that it is doable on these bikes if you are rolling wider grippier tyres, your gearing is lower and you are relatively fit.

Great place for sundowners.

Nice little walk after Brunch.

If you're game, have a hike while it's really raining and you will hear the waterfalls roar.

Good for families with little kids. Expect it to be busy.

Highly recommend sunrise hike. We started at 3am. That rock scramble and sunrise was worth 1hr sleep. Would happily do this again in a heartbeat.

Also recommend the AirBnB in a Belle Tent...30mins drive from Base. Perfect place with an outdoor fire, wine and star gazing.

Awesome walk, beautiful terrain, waterfalls, definitely doing again.

Nice challenging hike with great views and rock scrambling. Signage is great in some areas and in others felt like the blind leading the blind. Reminded me how important it is to be able to read a map and know your bearings.
