A friend and I visited Cape Raoul and we loved it! The track was not rocky and was well kept with some board walks. We decided to jog most of it and with stopping along the way to take pictures, we were easily able to...More

Loved this walk. Heaps of variety of vegetation and scenery . Spectacular views and very well maintained . Don’t need long pants at all. Take a wind jacket as it’s windy along the coast. Moderate fitness is fine, it’s not a hard walk. Loved it.

Quite undulating, descent path, a few more signs to give idea of distance would be great. Once you reach the "summit" the view is incredible.

I did the Cape Raoul day hike on a Sunday near the end of March. I was staying in Hobart and started off quite early shortly after the sunrise (around 7:30). I wasn't able to use Cape Raoul as such as the destination on the...More

If you cannot face a 5 hour walk - make the effort to visit the Cape Raoul Lookout (and Shipstern Lookout just 200m in the other direction at the fork). Parking is tricky near the start after 12km of rutted unsealed road and the walk...More

This is quite a long hike that I would categorise as medium-hard. That means that if you're a hiker and do plenty of it then this would be a medium hike, if you had little so far then this will be a hard hike but...More

The Cape Raoul lookout is more than 20 minutes, probably about 40 minutes but is worth the walk. Depends on the fitness of the 70 year olds- I am 69 and have no trouble, being a fairly regular walker
