Well worth the trek up the hill, even in the almost 30 degree heat. Be sure to see the view from the main platform and the second smaller one overlooking Zenith Beach. The detour to see the gun emplacements was not worth the extra effort...More

This steep ascent is on an easy to walk track with good views all the way. The panorama at the top is magnificent and definitely worth all the puff and leg workout. A little difficult to find close parking when busy

Well worth the stairs and the walk....husband managed to have baby in a harnessed backpack and walked up with only one rest. Easily marked walk so no risk of getting lost. All worth the magnificent scenery up the top.

Not a very long walk but steep! Well worth doing as the view from the top is amazing but take water, you will need it! And wear decent walking shoes. There are several flights of quite narrow metal stairs. They are also a number of...More

A must do whilst in the area. The track is all on a steep incline. A reasonable fitness level is required. There are many seats on the way up if a break is needed. The path is marked by a mixture of pavers, metal stair...More
