This is a great coastal track that ends at the Cape Baily Lighthouse. The track is good for runners and trekkers of all ages. It is pretty exposed and windy so bring a hat and some sunscreen! Keep an eye on the ocean and you may see some whales.

We walked from visitor center, with extra 2km. When you are looking for whale watching, the tip is, following the boats in the sea. They knew where whales are.

Did this as part of a 50km walk, decent but not amazing. Personally would rather head to the royal national park.

Fantastic walk around Cape Solander and Cape Bailey. Pretty wet after rain and hard going on the rocks. Path can be a little hard to find. second half is a beach slog, better at low tide and there will be lots of people! Bus is very infrequent on weekends so caught an uber back to the car

An absolutely beautiful walk. Very easy with little in the way of gradients. It is very well signposted and there are sections of boardwalks through the wet areas. There were lots of walkers later in the morning but earlier on it was nice and quiet. It would be a very different walk if there was any wind though.

pretty boring hike but good for jogging if you're into that since most of the way is paved well. It is a very very easy walk, not at all moderate.

Very pretty walk with unusual erosion of the rock face. The fauna is stunning and the blackened banksia contrasts beautifully against the green and white foliage of surrounding plants. It is an easy walk definitely not moderate and would suit all fitness levels.

Great spot in the winter - the northern end starts at one of the best whale watching lookout points in Sydney.

Beautiful track to run/hike with pack. Went on an afternoon at 4pm, after the rain cleared up. Only a handful of people seen on the walk. Great view of the ocean & challenging footwork keeps you mentally focused around the cliff rocks
