Great walk up and over the Kuranda railway line to the top of the peak. Wear sturdy shoes as the track is uneven and in the wet quite muddy. Last part of track is steep but the view at the top is worth the effort....More

Worth the trip up there. Nice views. You need a fairly good level of fitness. Can be very sloppy in the rain. Wear good shoes.

This is a challenging walk which rewards you with a fantastic view at the end out to Smithfield and the coast overlooking the Northern Beaches. You can also take a swim in one of the Stoney Creek water holes for a refreshing cool off afterwards....More
