Very peaceful walk with lots of birds and moss-covered logs. It was nice to end the walk at the Iluka Bluff lookout where we saw 3 whales in the ocean.

A very pleasant walk in a beautiful subtropical setting, with the bonus of a nice beach and bluff waiting at the end.

Kind of underwhelming

I have walked/road this track many times as a kid as we use to stay with our Nan & Pop who lived in Iluka. We still go back and do this track regularily
