Beautiful walk on a surprisingly wet day. astounding views along the way. Not even the constant showers could ruin the hike. i think it just made it more beautiful and scenic. some part we were even walking in the clouds, magic!

Great trail, lots to see. Feels like you are miles away but easy to access

Stunning views and Antarctic Beech trees on the way to the outlook.

Nice pretty flat trail

Very nice trail. I did it three times during my trip in Australia. It is impossible to get lost since you follow a path all long, the view is amazing. The trail is really accessible and not so difficult since it is not too steep! Would defend recommend ! Also, search for the fairy pools a hidden spot where to can swim :)

THE best way to see Fraser Island hands down. I'd been to Fraser by 4x4 previously but the lakes were overcrowded and not that much fun. In the 5 days we hiked the Great Walk, every afternoon we had a lake to ourselves because the walk took you to parts of the lake that were inaccessible by vehicles. We went in April. The trail is pretty flat most of the way with not many hills.

Stunning view, trail a lot harder than expected. Not a long hike, but gets very steep and slippery in the dust. Would not recommend doing in the heat as very exposed, had to stop a few times for a breather.

Very undulating and some sections quite steep 'toblerone' style.
I didn't really enjoy the gravel/bluestone surface underfoot all the way round which would probably be better for a bike (if which there were a few out). Also not much of a walk if you're after glorious views.
Good 4.5hr workout nonetheless - and of course take plenty of water as there's nothing on the route.

Nice hike for an aerobic workout only takes about 2 hours return if you're in fit condition.

Do make sure you take water.

Unfortunately my girlfriend and I weren’t able to get to the trail head until 1500, and so we decided to hike just to Blue Gum campground, eat, and turn around. There are some great views of the lake and even in the heat of the afternoon, there was plenty of breeze. The trail is very well defined, of what we walked of it, with visible markers at intersections with other trails.

There’s also a newly cut path which runs along the bank of the lake and reconnect to the trail along a firebreak about an hour into the hike. The views are nice but this trail is cut at quite an angle. Personally I wouldn’t bother with this.

Blue Gum campground is quite spacious, with a portable toilet and reasonable proximity to the lake. I wouldn’t mind doing an overnighter there.

In all I enjoyed the hike and am very much looking to doing the full loop when we can get there in the AM. Made it back to the car just as the sun set.

WOW! That was no joke. Not a long hike, but easily one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever done. The “chicken wall” scared my boyfriend off so I left him there and kept going, what an adrenaline rush! Highly recommended, but don’t underestimate the challenge.

Very nice little hike, busy at even 6am. Not difficult and beautiful views at the top.

Great walk around the mountain and the track leading off is a good walk would highly recommend

If you enjoy a nice walk through a scenic forest leading into a nice scamble and then a rock climb to the top with epic views everywhere then make sure your fit because this is for the hard

Long trek but with a swimming hole at the end! Heaps of interesting things to see along the way, with a few different landscapes. Would recommend, just make sure to take plenty of water, especially in summer.

The closure notice has gone from the Parks website. Will be trying this next Monday.

awesome walk.. great views.

Enjoyed it immensely, a bit of rock scrambling at top Nothing drastic. There are cliffs by the trail. so be aware. especially with children. Amazing views from the Summit

short relaxing run
