There are two ways to get to the pinnacles, one is easier than the other. The view of the multicoloured rockface, the gully and the sea is spectacular.

The drive is in a rough road but not far and not too far the walk is easy very quite walking in the bush and the view at the lookout was well worth the walk and drive

Easy enough walk & the view is amazing. I recommend doing the loop walk triathlete than walking back the same way you come in. Not too difficult & not too much walking. Approximately 1km

Nice little walk with great views. Not sure which little criters was sitting in the bush nearby because we could hear them crawl, but didn't see anything. And it sure was no kangaroo.

Well worth the short drive ((15 mins?) south of Merimbula - pleasant forest walk, stunning clifftop views then before you know it you're back at the carpark.

Probably not as spectacular as the photos make it out to be but it is a pleasant walk leading to a lovely beach.
