Steep climb, lots of sweating, many of those "I'm pretty sure I can't go any further" moments. But we persisted, and were rewarded with an amazing sunset! The trip back down, in the dark, was a little creepy with lots of forest animal noises and...More

Not for the unfit, this walk was a great exercise. Didn't take us too far from resort central as the crow flies, but it takes time to climb so steeply. The reward is the incredible views and photo opportunities of Hamilton and surrounding islands. Take...More

A great way to check out the surrounding islands and down towards Catseye Beach. The walk to the 190 metre high Passage Peak is well worth the effort. You need to be in reasonable fitness although it's not a race so take ya time and...More

Walk to the end of the beach where the track starts and go from there. Depending on where you leave from only adds around 1km if easy walking to the track

If you are really fit and prepared for a steep stepped track at the end then it’s possible. I don’t think this 44 year unfit mummy could but if you want to and are fit it’s no harm setting off and having a go!
