I live nearby and do this track daily, great exercise. Full of birdlife/wildlife, I often see brush turkeys, kookaburras, King parrots, noisy pitta, water dragons, I have seen a large carpet python here before too... There are two lookouts with spectacular views and in season you can spot whales.

Beautiful coastal walk - hot, busy and parking is limited when busy but you just need to be patient. The rainforest circuit has some lovely trees and fantastic lookout views A very nice walk that is easy to do with some bush turkeys on the way.

We did the track and threw in the Rainforest track on top and did it all in an hour and a half. Highly trafficked and quite warm in October but a very easy track to get a few miles in your legs or new shoes.

Nice little morning or afternoon walk for the whole family. The coastal views stunning. Great swimming areas along the way. Delightful. Keep in mind can be quite busy with Tourists and fitness groups.

No dogs or pets allowed on trail, but lovely walk to do up and around the headland with stunning views of the neighbouring beaches. Recommend a swim in the Tallebudgera creek on the headland side after, particularly during high tide or early in the morning.

Stunning ocean view with the challenge of a stair incline and enjoyment of steady decline and flats. The location allows for a beautiful picturesque walk ended with a beach swim and option for a yummy lunch in town.

Too busy and short for a proper hike but otherwise beautiful. Great views! Good choice to take visitors to or if time poor!

Great trail with an amazing view! The lookout points are beautiful with some wildlife present. We saw a few different birds and lizards. There are no restroom services on the trail though.

Fab views. The lower track is all concrete & can be very busy as its also access to the beaches along the creek. Love this area.

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
