Super randonnée plutôt courte et accessible. La partie la plus dure est la montée pour Marion's lookout. Le chemin offre tout, marche dans les plaines, en forêt avec des cascades, sur la roche, etc. Et offre de magnifique points de vue

Lovely walk, not too difficult, despite there are few stairs to reach wombat pool peak. Wombat pool has quite a special vibe. You can continue to marions lookout if you feel energized.

perfect weather, nice boardwalks with wombats at the beginning followed by a moderate uphill walk with a couple of lovely small waterfalls. lots of beautiful lake views at the top followed by a straightforward downhill past a couple of lakes. took us 1:45.

This isn’t for the faint of heart. A good hike to test your endurance. When you approach the summit to Cradle it requires extensive scrambling - in some parts over snow. Best to start via Hanson Peak as going that way allows you to hit Marion’s Lookout on the way back. WEAR shoes with grip!!

Great hike with some steep section to get to the lookout. Great views of Crater Lake, Cradle Mountain. Lots of wombats near the start at Ronny Creek.

I did this walk as the beginning of a 6 day over land track walk, I would recommend this trail to anyone who wants to get outside and experience the outdoors. This track is suitable for anyone who is reasonably physically fit
