Started at Clarkes Beach carpark as plenty of free 4hr parking near massinger rd. Walk up the hill to the Pass and continue via Watego's, up to lighthouse. After lighthouse continue all the way to the end. Turn right on the road and then left down the hill to the start. Great time to see whales. Have also done this the other way so through the bush first up to lighthouse and down to Wategos, now my favorite way.

Great brisk walk, 250 steps to the top, with some wrist weights, a couple of bocchi balls, this four times, gets the ticker goin'
Meet heaps in both directions, most saying G'day, a few chats.
Great view up the top, and a couple of whales here and there!
After the workout, a cold shower/and or swim, then relax on Wategos for the rest of the day.
Beautiful spot of Australia

Did this for a couple of weeks after the Blues festival
