Popped in and had a spectacular view over Bulli and the northern Beaches, prior to going to Panorama House for lunch. It was a great sunny day so the water looked turquoise and deep blue. Perfect day for taking in the Illawarra from up high.

We parked at the bottom and did the trek up and back down. Definitely not an easy walk (it’s all uphill, a few ladders, many many stairs), but there are benches every so often for a break. The view from the top is beautiful, and...More
