    Breathtaking views from the summit
    The climb to the summit is recommended for those with medium levels of fitness and above. The view from the summit is one of my favourite views and is a rewarding walk. It provides a 360 view of the surrounds and is an exceptional place for a sunset. Highly recommended!

    Best views in NSW!
    The hike to the top of Mt Tomaree is hard work but the views from the top are jaw-dropping. The walk is rated as Grade 5, the only one I came across in Australia, but while it is fairly tough there are much tougher walks in the Blue Mountains that are rated as Grade 4. So don't let the grading put you off this hike. It is an absolute must-do in Port Stephens

    Short and challenge but worth the effort and great workout.
    Short and challenging with amazing views. The walk up the Summit was truly a physical challenge but worth it. The incline is fairly steep and there are a number of stairs to climb as a result but overall worth the effort.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a track that I have ventured to run / walk many times over the past 40 years & with the recent partial upgrade from ladders to the wide staircases it’s so much more manageable especially when it is fully completed.
Runners can do the round trip in less than 30 minutes where walkers will have it all sown up on under an hour.

We enjoyed a walk up to the lookout and although the weather was windy and a bit rainy, it was a great walk and view. Worth doing and it was not that challenging.

A great hike to a spectacular lookout. The lower potions of this track are paved and easy-going, however it does get a little bit steeper towards the top. The World War II gun emplacements are on a separate track that does require a slightly more challenging bushwalk to the summit.

The most spectacular view I have seen since I left brisbane. The view is just breathing, the Crystal water, sand ,ocean and the two islands at the back. Mamma Mia! A short walk or a long one you decide, as you can walk along the shore.
