Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A peaceful oasis close to the city. The birdsong is probably my favourite thing about it, then the bush. I feel very fortunate to live within walking distance.

    I solo hiked to Cathedral Rock. The track does have signage at the beginning. But I still missed that and went up to the end of the road by mistake. Anyway once I returned to the track head I was ok. It’s a steep climb on an ankle twisting track at times. But the views are worth it. I went on to Montague Thumbs and joined up with the Wellington Falls and Pipeline tracks before catching a ride back to Kingston. Around 17km all up as a thru hike.

    There are several starting points but for a short easy walk with a dog we started from across the road from the Ferntree Tavern and headed up to Silver Falls . Lots more alternatives along this track just check to make sure sections are dog friendly, watch out for cyclists.

    Mt Wellington is part of a larger National Park which includes a large number of walking and climbing trails of various types. The Organ Pipes trail starts towards the top of the hill winds it’s way across and the down the mountain across the face of a cliff of dolerite columns.
    Our guide Matt picked us up on the bus and gave an informative commentary and then made tea and coffee along the way. It was a small group and friendly. There was no uphill involved, no steps except down to The Springs bus stop at the end.
    The views of the city and surrounding areas was spectacular.
    Highly recommended even for the relatively unfit.
    The mountain seems to be its own micro climate with very changeable weather. We had sun, cloud and a sprinkle of rain in two and a half hours. The day before it had snowed at the summit!
    Warm clothes including beany mandatory for comfort.
    Highly recommended.

    We visited day after heavy rain and there was still SNOW lying around between the rocks. The view was exceptional- could see 360! The Ferntree Walk is worth visiting too just past the turn off for Kunanyi

    We love this walk up the rivulet track from the city to Cascade Brewery. There is parking near the start of the track on the residential streets for 2 hours for free. We enjoy seeing the rivulet and it is a good 1.5 hour round trip walk.

    Enjoyed the walk along the Soldiers of the Avenue stopping to look at many of the plaques along the trail.
    The plaque in the photo was interesting and the gentleman had some really Scottish names.
    Would highly recommend this walk.

    To extend my walk along the Kingston Beach Esplanade I followed the signs near the Kingston Beach Sailing Club to the Kingston Heights Track. After the initial climb within a few minutes the path flattens out leading to the fenced and gated Boronia Beach Reserve. Passing through the gate the track leads down to the beach via a steep dirt path and stairs; the beach is well worth visiting, secluded and peaceful.

    At the southern end of Blackmans Bay Beach I picked up the trail of the Suncoast Headlands Track. The track leads along the coastline for only a few metres before arriving at a staircase taking you up to the headland. The track follows the coastline in front of houses, it is undulating, steep at times, with further staircases to climb; not suitable for all types of fitness or mobility. The views over the Bay were pleasant but mostly obscured. The track appeared well used by locals and their dogs. The track ends at a bush loop/dog exercise area where I turned around and returned to Blackmans Bay Beach; 30 mins return.
