Good, moderate climb with 15 year old son. Was raining a little bit but view was still good and path wasn’t too slippery. The parking threw us a bit, but apparently you park down near the boat ramp.

Good, relatively vigorous walk with the kids. Didn’t take our 7 year old but the 10 and 13 year old kids did it quite easily. A bit of a balancing act on the summit as it was quite busy but beautiful views. Nice, quick climb with a breeze and beautiful views as a reward.

Great walk for my three kids. 6 year old wanted a shoulder ride after a while but she did pretty well. Shame we didn’t see much wildlife at all (expected to at least see a koala) but it was probably due to the complaining my 6 year old was doing . Very secluded. Make sure you keep a gps with you or look for markers as it can be a bit enclosed and disorientating. Good walk in the bush!

Great walk with my two eldest kids. They loved it but were a bit puffed. My eldest (12) said it was more challenging than Mt Coolum that he had climbed just recently. I must admit, I thought it would be easier than it was but then again, we did it pretty quickly.
