Walked it June 2018. The millions of steps (it felt like that many) was a bit hard on the knees but that’s ok. At the moment the track is wet and a little muddy. There is some flowing water (not deep, just enough to wet you shoes) in parts. The May bush fired have blackened the very top few hundred metres. Doesn’t really detract from the experience and hopefully won’t cause to much erosion. We met a lots of underprepared people on the way, white jeans, dress shoes, no water or carry a toddler. Hopefully they had the sense to turn around.

What a beautiful walk! Despite having to get up at 3am to see the sunrise from the top, it was absolutely worth the hike. Such a beautiful view from the top and not to much of a hike. Keep in mind there are a lot of steps, up the first section, so it's a bit difficult to begin with, so take it easy.

When: December Temp: 24 C Start Time: 11AM Definitely worth the struggle. The hardest part is the middle section (so keep persevering!) The last third of the walk is just lovely, the elevation allows you to see on all sides of the mountain and you get a really nice breeze. The walk is also not as steep towards the peak. The views at the top are amazing giving you 360 degree vantage. Stopped many times on the way up because I really struggled to it took about 3 hrs up. Then 45 mins back down because we ran the whole way back down.

An amazing experience. We went in January, on a day when it was 28 degrees and sunny. We needed a LOT of water as the way is all uphill and quite challenging - especially for those amongst us who are not very fit (ie me!). It took us 6 hours return in total. We had 2 adults, a 17yr old and two 10yr olds in our family. If you have any problems with knees at all, I recommend climbing sticks. The way up has steps a lot of the way which is better then sliding around on steep gradients, but was very hard on my knees. Coming down was equally as difficult - I was turning sideways to step down many of the stairs as they were quite high. The climbing sticks were invaluable. Allow plenty of time - I know the official rating is 1-3hours, but I think the 1hour can only be for those people we saw running up Bluff Knoll! (Yes indeed, running!!). Great views from the top. And rocks to lie on and recover your breath before heading back down.
