The path wasn’t easy to find. It’s not marked as the Mount Nelson track. Had to follow Signal Station. Especially the beginning just worked with the GPS. The trail itself is nice, but until the top no nice views. Lots of dead trees. Saw plenty green parrots. The view on top of the mountain is nice. I took the Truganini Trail down the hill. It’s maintained but more natural.

At the start it is an urban walk, then a park walk leading to a trail along a creek. Several cross paths led to some incorrect trail choices. Hang in there past Churchill Ave and the trail becomes steeper and more fun. Great views from the top.

This walk is much harder than it sounds on paper. It is very rocky for almost the whole walk and some steep rocky climbs. It is also poorly marked and very often you need to retrace your steps to find the correct way. Having said that you do get spectacular views of the surrounding escarpments and the falls themselves are very impressive.

An absolutely stunning coastal cave.

Overcrowded both at the lookout and on the beach. Absolute tourist trap! Nicer beaches to be found elsewhere without the traffic...

We walked from the bus stop in Churchill Av. It is steep climbing up through the gully, but out on the ridge is open easy walking.
It is a nice selection of native bushland so close to a capital city.
Enjoy a coffee at the Old Signal Station at the top, or there are free BBQs just near the gate.
