  • Imposing skyline viewable from the highway. Has picnic sites and a variety of walks. Was too hot the day we visited to attempt any that wee too difficult.  more »
  • An easy climb - 45 minutes each way - to a beautiful view. And kangaroos at the top as an added bonus.  more »
  • The drive to the parking from main road can be a bit rough but short nonetheless. The trail is an easy walk to the viewpoint of Mt Abrupt. The trail also leads further to Mt Sturgeon if you are more adventurous. Along the way, one can see a lake at the foot of Mt Abrupt and also a lot of grass trees along the way (I believed it's called that).
  • The hike was 1.2 km one way and takes about 15min if you walk fast. The view at the sunrise was amazing
