Amazing walk to the summit of Tomaree Head. The views are spectacular and the 45-minute walk seems totally worth it. Felt proud of myself for making it because it was a challenging for those who are scared of heights.

We had a great time walking to the top of Tomaree Head. The walk is not that challenging - my five year old walked up and back. The views are excellent and a bit scary for those scared of heights. Especially when the wind picked...More

A bit of a steep walk but well worth it for the awesome views at the top!!! At the top you can see pristine and deserted beaches (see our photos)!

Super views in any weather. The walk up gets the blood pumping. Challenge yourself and run up! Watch the whales at play while the medics revive you. Panoramic

I really think this is a must for anyone visiting the area. The walk itself is all paved for the first half and then well constructed ladder steps with rails and some traditional track walking. It is steep in sections but most people could do...More

This is such a lovely quick walk and a must do if you’re in the area. I think it took about 25mins and has a beautiful views at the top. It’s quite busy but well worth dealing with the crowds.
