Hiked it on a school camp, it is a difficult peak for experianced climbers too, to my memory we went through the palm gorge (it could be the waterfall gorge but I dont remember where we went, it was the guides decisions) The gorge was challenging, we constantly had to think and climb over massive rocks, I probably consumed half my camelbak on the mountain. The decent was even harder due to it constantly raining, I fell probably 3 times on the decent. All in all it was a decent experiance.

Beautiful walk, and an easy trail. You'll end up at a great rocky outlook.

Very beautiful, takes you up through Antarctic Beech, then down into gorgeous creek lines and waterfalls! Great views on a good day if the cloud isn’t in your way! Beware leeches if it’s wet!

very easy track. id say perfect for beginners.

Nice walk with a great view and restaurant at the top.

Great view from the top of the mountain. Very steep hills.

Nice easy walk. Marked trail and swimming hole. Should definitely get the bus if you want to maximise the walk through Mossman Gorge.

Easy loop trail through Mossman Gorge, which is part of Daintree National Park. Occasional signs along the trail identify trees and suggest wildlife to look out for. We saw several colourful Australian brushturkeys and watched a little pied cormorant fishing in the river.

great ride but very steep in places recommend shod horse

Was a pleasant walk. I’m not very fit and absolutely enjoyed the walk (I did have to stop a few times as it’s mostly up hill) Scenery was amazing and once you reach the top it is well worth it. Unfortunately it was very dry when we went but there was still water coming down the falls.

A very popular tourist area and walk - one can walk from the visitor centre past the aboriginal village to save $ on a small bus fee but it is encouraged to take the bus. The walk itself is lovely including a section of raised platform with info signs. The small out and back option to the NW of the circuit is definitely worth it - a beautiful little pool perfect for a dip awaits and was my highlight of the circuit.

This info is incorrect. Mt Superbus is in Queensland not NSW. White Swamp is in NSW . The Lincoln bomber is also much safer to be reached from Emu Creek Rd. There is a camping area and information centre at the end of Emu Creek road which starts near Emu Vale Qld. These are contact numbers if you wish to go this trail, this way you can know before you get there wether it is safe to travel. These areas are prone to sudden weather changes and bush fires. Park Rangers have removed this track from local maps because it is dangerous and have had to rescue people from this area. 0402002337 or 0746648053

Beautiful hike. Not hard at all

This is not really a kid friendly track... nor is there much of a trail to follow anymore after the last cyclone. It used to be quite easy to get up and back now if you don't know where you are going it's easy to get lost as the track is pretty much non existent.

Book early in summer. Great swimming hole which you have scramble over the rocks to get to.
Walk is a bit exposed so in summer have water.

Not hard at all. Same great walk like Mt Mitchell. Amazing views.

best views ever

This hike was the perfect shady place to take a break from the heat and go for a swim in the river! The rainforest and trees were absolutely beautiful. Easy, short hike.

Nice little Hike/Walk and very well signed. The trail to Witts Lookout is great and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen, mainly birds, marsupials and the occasional snake :). It is a rainforest walk. Ensure you bring insect repellent and water as it can get quite hot and humid during the wet season. The views of the Crystal Creek Valley and the Palm Islands group at the lookout are great. On the way back you can go to cloudy Creek for a nice refreshing swim when water is running during the wet season. It is a bit steep getting there but nothing too extreme.

This walk has been divided into four separate walks or had been from the start. Personally I prefer longer walks so I'll pass this.

Relaxing hike. My wife and I did this hike several times while exploring on the weekends when we lived in Brisbane. It is an easy access....you can bike there, take public transportation, or drive. Great plants and wildlife. The view of Brisbane is great at the top.

Great overnight trip. We camped in the saddle. We had whiteout conditions the first day on the summit. The second day was very clear and provided amazing views. You can do this in one day, but we obtained the permits to camp overnight. This is a great hike with great views.

I was living for 2 years in Brisbane Australia. My friend Matt took me on this hike...it was one of the best hikes I have ever done. The views were amazing and the hike was challening. Make sure you take plenty of water as there is no water source on the top. It was very rainy on the way up but cleared with an unbelievable rainbow. You can camp further back to the NNE but you must get an approval permit through the parks department. Finding the fuselage of the Arvo LIncoln Bomber was surreal. It was well intact and there was a memorial that described the event. I highly recommend reading about the crash before you head out...it will make it a more somber and appreciative experience. This is a pretty good site for information:

You can do this hike year round...MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE WEATHER!!! You don't want to get caught out on a bad day.

This trail is very popular both for the locals and tourists alike. This trail is used predominantly for fitness and other associated outdoor activities. There are quite a few tracks to choose from depending on your levels of fitness and all offer some great views of Townsville CBD and surroundings, Cape Cleveland and Magnetic island. It is popular with tourists also as it offers great sunset photo opportunities. The most used (by me anyway) is the Goat track and the Dianela Trail ( currently closed ) to the summit trail. The Goat track is quite a difficult track as it is very steep and has lots of uneven steps to reach the carpark (well over 500) and a few more to the summit for good measure. If you are not that adventurous Castle Hill Summit can be accessed on foot, by bike or car via the road. It is quite steep but manageable. It is more even and no stairs. (Except to the summit walk)

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.
