I would play around there when I was a kid, they have repaired the steps, it is used by the fitness freaks, i guess its worth a look see.

When I visited the steps were full of fitness fanatics charging up and down the steps. Can't see the attraction myself. Just make sure you don't leave your belongings at the bottom. It is a long return journey.

If you're fit and physically able to do it, why not? Get a free leg workout on your way to Kings Park. The view from the stairs are OK but there are better views from within the Kings Park precinct.

First climbing the stairs and then you can continue in Kings Park and Botanic Garden. A bit up and down, but the views are stunning. If you do this run as a tourist you should certainly also stop to make pictures. No traffic, only footpaths.

Although designed to get you from river level up to Kings Park it is most used as part of fitness programmes. This time we looked at the recent renovation but in the past have used it to prepare for trekking

This is on most people’s bucket list but not mine....however, meeting at the cafe at the bottom meant a descent and that went well. You will find people passing at a jog or taking the steps two or three at a time; some make this...More
