Please do not read comment from Elese M. as its deceiving. There's absolutely no way you could done this walk in 45 mins, its 8 kilometres of pretty hard climbing so its takes around 3-3.5 hours. Its VERY STEEP and dusty when dry, I absolutely do not recommend this walk for small children, elderly or if you have problem with the knees. Also, it says bikes permitted but the area is not suitable for riding bikes as incline goes about 50-60% in some areas with lots of roots and stones

45 minutes to the lookout, with some steeper sections at the start of the trail. Lovely rainforest walk and decent view from the top.
