I felt inspired to visit by all the photos of this place. When I got here, its easy to see why this is the No.1 attraction in Port Stephens. Don't worry about how hot the weather is, the strong breeze when you get to the...More

It is a steep, invigorating walk but so worth it once you get to the top! There are benches along the way so if you need to rest it is possible. It took us longer than most as my husband is a photographer and there...More

Don't let the steepness of the mountain bother you, there are seats along the way and you won't remember the sweaty steps when you're inhaling the fresh sea breeze admiring the view across the Port. A must do if you're in the bay area!

amazing views from the top of this hill. Easy walk up for all ages. Our group was aged 7 up. It's so worth the walk!

If you are in the area it is worth stopping here and having a walk to on this head. The view is quite amazing and gives you a good perspective of where everything is

Incredible views from the top of Mt Tomaree for those who are willing to expend some energy. The climb to the top is steep, but well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

Glad we went up early in the morning, before it got too hot. The view was superb well worth the many steps up to the top. The fitness freaks who were running up made me feel old as I stopped for breathers - but I...More
