Located at the eastern end of the picturesque Adventure Bay, the Fluted Cape circuit is a fantastic 3 hour 6km return walk taking in crystal blue waters, remarkable coastal cliffs and abundant wildlife. The trail is steep in sections with some substantial climbing required to reach the Fluted Cape summit at 272m.

Reasonably challenging walk. We set off in a clockwise direction and so encountered the steep cliff egde walk first. The views on the way up were stunning, but I found the track a bit scary at times and wouldn't reccommend for children or those that...More

As the other reviewers have said, definitely do this one in a clockwise direction. The challenging uphill part of the walk was really only a quarter of the whole thing, which took us just under 2 hours. If you're not one for heights, perhaps give...More

Just did the Walk today. Amazing views from up top. But very muddy with slips and very soft ground after rains overnight. Definitely agree with everyone here.. Do the trail clockwise for sure. You'll suffer the first hour going up up up steep slopes but...More

This trail is a must but take the grass cape trail first and do the circuit clockwise as this gives you the best views of the Flute as you walk up the trail. Stunning views all the way up the climb and from the top.

I recommend this 4.3 mile trail which starts on an easy walk (Grass Point Trail) and then turns into the Fluted Cape Trail. Make sure to hike it clockwise so you can go up the steep, slick, sometimes wet trail. It is hard to go...More

I struggled to rate this hike as it really depends on what you rate as important in a hike! It is a challenging but not impossible hike to the very top of Fluted Cape. If you go clockwise, you'll climb up the steep path along...More

We walked this track which was fairly easy up the mid way and then over to the Cape ledge! Spectacular view to be had, no safety with fencing or rails, so you need to be mindful of this especially with children. We loved the scenery...More

This is a challenging walk, we took two hours to complete it and went in a clockwise position. In my opinion clockwise is the safer option. The farthest side of the track comes fairly close to the cliff edge at points and it is far...More
