The Wineglass bay lookout is an amazing experience. Everyone must do this at least once in their lives. This climb was my 3rd time and it gets more beautiful each time. The climb is tough but well worth the effort for the view at the...More

The only ticket you need to buy is the one to get into the national park. You buy it at the information centre on the road in You don't need another ticket to do the walk. Enjoy
