wineglass bay is very beautiful. nice fir swimming. multiple sightings of wallaby along the hike. this trail has little shade. there were some mosquitoes; seems to increase in activity in the afternoon.

Breathtaking walk with plenty of small tracks around the lake with great spots for photos, and taking in the views. Some stair sections which all kids could easily navigate, we took our 4, 6 and 8 year olds kids who loved it. Rainforests, plenty of changes in vegetation and spotted an echidna today too.

Beautiful walk suitable for the whole family

If you take this path in a clockwise direction, the return leg is fairly feature/view-less. Some spectacular views of the peninsular and Recherche Bay on the way out. Easy path out, single track (through bracken) on the way back.

Unbelievable hike! Took us 7 nights and 8 days starting in melaleuca and ending at cockle creek. We got very lucky with weather and because of that we lucked out with some wildlife, like the spotted tailed quoll and most of the endemic birds! The days over the passes are pretty tough though so be ready for a challenge. I would recommend camping as close as you can to the base of the iron range before going over (Louisa River). Would highly recommend this hike to people who want remote wilderness and some unbelievable beaches along the way.

Wonderful trek with beautiful views. Trek very well maintained. Light traffic when we walked.

Amazing lookout, family friendly track. Well signed and breath taking views.

easy traileri, not much of a fall

not for kids.

definitely the most beautiful track!

Wish we could capture the clean air here!
The fern rainforest was breathtaking before you emerge to take in the impressive 90m falls.
Well beaten track and some lovely log benches along the way for rest stops. Family friendly.

Beautiful. Good swim spot but cold. Worth it

Nice coastal walk. Trek well maintained and an easy walk with no steep inclines. A few areas not sign posted.

Loved this walk. Great views

beautiful scenery with lots of options for hiking

Suggest doing this walk clockwise - allows you to enjoy short rests to take in the great views while climbing up along the coast, then enjoy the downhill through the inland section of the trail.
Wear good shoes as is quite steep and slippery along the cliff edge.

Awesome circuit walk to celebrate the New Year!
We started early to avoid the heat/crowds and walked clockwise. There are lots of steps down to Wineglass Bay beach from the lookout, so walking the other way would be more difficult.
Take plenty of water - the 1L per person recommendation at the trailhead would be insufficient for most people, particularly later in the day.
Also keep a lookout for snakes. We came across 3 within 1 hour and were warned of another by hikers coming the other way. So tread carefully and wear enclosed shoes.

Breath taking views, and ever-changing environments. I GPS tracked the entire walk which was actually 50km total.

Stunning scenery. One of my favourite places in Australia.

Lovely walk with views of the cradle mountains and lakes. Not to challenging some uphill climbs but breathtaking views. At Rooney creek there are lots of wombats about so keep a look out.

Lovely hike around the lake with my different plant ecosystems as you walk around. There are few nice beach areas which are good for breaks. The path is along a broad walk and super easy to follow. The times given for the walks are quite generous and don’t take that long. Toilets at trailhead. Was pretty busy on 26th December but still had some peace and quite.

Lovely rainforest walk around 3 waterfalls. I would suggest doing this route Anti-clockwise to save horseshoe falls and Russel falls at the end. We saw lots of pademelons along the way so keep your eyes out. Track was very clear and sign posted, the timings on the signs are very generous so doesn’t take as long as you think. Only some small ups and downs a relatively easy hike. Wear bug spray

Great hike with views of wineglass bay, the incredibly beautiful hazards beach (which I preferred to wineglass beach). Hike wasn’t too streneous and easily done in trainers. Was fairly busy did this one 23rd December, but still had some alone time. Bring lots of water, it gets hot! Also sun screen and head out early to avoid heat. We did this route clockwise and was definitely easiest done this way around

Great track with much see and enjoy. Make sure you take your time to enjoy the side trips.
Need to take wet weather gear because the weather can change rapidly.
