Round trip walk took about 1.5 hours. It was a warm day so many were stopping for a breather. Its more of a moderate level walk. For those who don't walk a lot, this could be difficult but its really worth the views. Very touristy...More

The walk to the Wineglass Bay lookout was a little steep but very well worth it. The view from the lookout is amazing. Take it slow and you will reap the rewards when you get there! The walk back is easier.

The path to the lookout is very well made and maintained. The walk is suitable for all ages and the view from the lookout is beautiful. If you are fit and don't mind heights the Mt Amos 'climb' provides an amazing view of Wineglass Bay...More

After a long hike up lots of stairs (not for the faint hearted) the view is lovely. As long as you are able to get a free shot without a heap of tourists taking up the landing, you are lucky. We much preferred going into...More
