Walked at low tide, really enjoyable views and great beach walk, best with offshore winds

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

Amazing! Not that kid friendly

Excellent hike. Great water falls and clear ponds.

Gorgeous walk where my gf and saw all sorts of wildlife from lyre birds to lizards, a snake, wallabys and more! Beautiful change in forest from bush at the top to rainforest down low by the creeks.

Spectacular views over the Furneaux Islands. Can be cloudy on top. Worth the effort. Moderate difficulty if you have some fitness level.

Great workout with fabulous views from the top. Have to agree this shouldn’t be rated as easy/for families (with children under about 8 yo), since involves quite a lot of steep rock scrambling and is quite slippery in places. Would grade as a Moderate short walk/climb.

The map and details provided here makes it really easy to stay on the right track!

Be prepared to walk up hill! It’s beautiful. Go to Bald rock and soak up the views while you refuel. It’s all downhill from there ;-)
We saw three Lyrebirds along the way!

What an amazing walk. This is a privilege to walk. Access gate with code no problems. Trail markers best we have come across to date within WA. Well looked after and maintained. Over a 1000 steps staggered throughout entire length so little difficult on problematic knees- strap in advance good idea to assist discomfort, but worth it. Well placed bench seats and viewing platforms allowing rest stops taking in the majesty of this incredibly diverse natural landscape. Stunning!!! Time - allow more than u think. We normally bush walk between 4-6kms an hour (7-8 road/ flat) we did 15kms today including all the xtras. Wet weather slowed us also. 5hrs 20mins. But the views amazing u can’t help but stop and smell the roses. Hope this info helps

Stunning location close to the heart of SYDNEY.

Beautiful views down side trail

New track through the forest is much nicer than the previous fire trail route. A few step sections along the way but nothing technical or exposed, although some base level of fitness would be recommended ie. probably not advised for the old or infirmed.

The trail terminates at the Yellowpinch summit at a cliff edge with a dramatic outlook on Mt Barney. Small children should be supervised closely here as there is no safety fence. New info sign points out the peaks and main points of interest.

Great work QPWS, this walk is now very much improved.

Began this hike/climb at 4AM. It was dark, but with torches it was doable. The first 15 minutes of the climb were the hardest (in my opinion) as it’s pretty steep but it levels out and becomes more gradual after that. My partner disagrees and says the last 15 minutes of the ascent was the hardest as you have to climb one handed or in the dark. The chain helps here a fair bit.
We saw and heard many birds, and as we went in winter.
When we arrived at the top, the sun was just about to rise. The experience was breathtaking and would definitely do it again.

Notes: Please don’t take a drone and ruin it for everyone else. The path is quite muddy so hike boots are advisable. Gloves would be nice at the top as there is a bit of wind.

I love this climb up the side of Mt Dandenong. Definitely a hard climb though and a suggestion to go down Zig Zag track for an easier and safer descent

Nice easy walk with changing scenery and stunning views. Slippery when wet but no steep inclines or descents. A good circuit.

Beautiful little walk with some challenging stairs and incline to get the heart rate up. Views of the headland are worth the walk up. Very popular any time of the day, suitable for all fitness levels and ages

Great walk to get you moving.

Really great hike up and amazing views. A shame they have planted that ugly radio tower facility at the summit

Great half day hike, I hiked from Jarrahdale ( In front of the cemetery) to Serpentine falls. well signed and nice views.
Recommend doing it this way as it saves you paying for entry to the falls ($15pp).

great for families

Super nice walk with beautiful scenery

I did this hike in preparation for Mt Kilimanjaro and thought it was a bit basic for my goal but the scenery was beautiful. Not very hilly and quite well signposted but a nice walk.

I did this hike with my new boots and an 8kg pack in preparation for Mt Kilimanjaro and although all my limbs are very sore, I would definitely recommend this trek! It’s very isolated and muddy but provides a range of different terrains, both uphill and downhill and the signage is pretty good.

This trail has beautiful views but it is not 16.6km as indicated here. The official sign at Lamington National Park states Ships Stern as 19km but my GPS said it was more than 20km. Lots of big fallen trees so be prepared to climb and pull yourself up over them. Scary bits up high on the trail but worth it for the views.

Love it
