Palawa Country

3 h 30 min to 5 h 30 min

10.8 km
oneway segment

↑ 448 m
↓ -349 m

Moderate track
Walk through eucalypt forests, colourful heathlands, and across bronzed moorlands. The short climb to Arthur's Peak is worthwhile for breathtaking views over Crescent Bay and beyond to Cape Raoul. Stay the night at Munro cabin with views over Munro Bight and Cape Hauy. Let us begin by acknowledging the Palawa people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
