Hard is an overstatement, I’d say moderate. Some super pretty other parts not so much. Would do again

Nice scenery in one part, boring walk on the second half. Not hard at all, even for beginners or casual hikers. Worth spending few hours though, especially if a side trip to figure eight pool is included.

An enjoyable walk with some good views and a few different landscapes (beach, rainforest, bush). The hard rating is an overstatement, more a moderate walk. Saw a wild echidna next to one of the boardwalks.

It was a nice hike though the inland half of the loop
was kind of boring with just a muddy track in the bush but once you get to the more coastal side of the loop you start getting some nice views. I honestly would have preferred I did an out and back hike on the coastal half of the loop instead in hindsight. The hike also definitely should not be rated hard.

Definitely not hard. I would rate this a moderate loop.

if you do it anti clockwise it becomes moderate instead of hard and it's a much nicer walk as you get the stretch of sandy rocky ground out of the way first
