Really nice walk which starts beside Coffs Harbour Marina, then continues up & across Muttonbird Island. There are viewing platforms & a path which you must remain on, so as not to damage the nesting grounds

The mutton birds are cleaning out their nests. Evidence is all over the island and along the trail.

Good for whale-watching. The hill is also good for interval training - how many repeats can you do? on Jun, 2019
