Awesome mountain to hit anytime and so close to the beach for a swim after.

Beautiful place.

Very rough at times, but worth the effort, do it early morning before the heat gets going! Take a rod as there are good fish to be caught, also liver foe bait. Watch for snakes

walking

I walk this every morning and afternoon on the way to and from work and I never get bored, so many activities to do and so many people about...from swimming, activity equipment, tourist attractions, cafe’s and fun parks, it’s got everything.

Thoroughly enjoyed this track. Amazing views from Nina’s Peak.

Some brief notes and tips from our experience -


Day 1 -
- Left Cardwell (by boat charter) at 8:20ish arrived at Seven Creek, Missionary Bay pontoon on Hinchinbrook Island at around 9:20am
- Nina Peak trail - about 1 hr incline to peak. Fairly difficult climb. Suggests having hands free, we left our packs at the bottom.
- We arrived at Little Ramsay Bay at 4pm.
- Suggest stay at Ramsay Bay if 3 night. Banksia not a nice beach. Nina Bay ok if have longer on island. Unsure if water is close by.
- Banksia not as nice a beach as Little Ramsay. More risk of crocodiles as near mouth of creek.
- Bring hiking chairs as no tables and difficult to find logs to sit on at Little Ramsay and you will be sore.


Day 2 -
- Don't put your shoes on when you leave Little Ramsay as you have to cross a creek at the end of the beach. If the tide is low enough, keep your shoes off as you will be able to cross in front of rocks instead of over them.
- Next 1-2 km from here is very difficult with rock face ledge walk and steep hill climb.
- From here the track was not as difficult as the first day apart from many creek crossings and muddy rainforest and tea tree swamp tracks.
-Would consider wet shoes this day to save constant stopping to take shoes off and on and maybe long pants for mozzies in tea tree swamp
- plenty of creek crossings after the muddy spots to wash your shoes clean
- took us 6 hrs Little Ramsay to Zoe Bay

Day 3
- leaving Zoe Bay, consider long pants as a lot of long grass which caused cuts to legs
- steep incline to top of waterfall
- a lot of creek crossings throughout the day and muddy swampy tracks. Again wet shoes would be suitable
- can get phone reception at top of ridge after walking through some long grass. Good time to make contact with lift home.
- dense rainforest and rock climbing/jumping to get through creeks.

Great views

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.

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.

Do it daily with our dogs. Really nice breeze and a beautiful view

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.
