At the southernmost peak of the Torndirrup Peninsula is Peak Head, a bluff of rounded cliffs with spectacular ocean views.
The track to Peak Head starts near the Stony Hill carpark and winds through thick coastal scrub. The return walk takes around 2.5 hours and requires some clambering and climbing over granite rocks and up small granite walls.

Gaelia Hunt rated Peak Head Track, Torndirrup National Park a 4 out of 5
However trail is not 4.8km. We did 5.8 and didn't even reach the final peak as couldn't find a path through the last bit of bush after the first level of rock near the summit.
Very glad I had walking poles.
