Wineglass Bay Lookout (55)

great-short-walk-mapWineglass Bay has long been regarded as having one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with sparkling clear water and dazzlingly white sand. The lookout, which is situated high on the ridges above the bay, gives the visitor spectacular views of the bay and the parklands.

The distance from the car park to the lookout is 2.4km (one way) and the return walk takes 1-1.5hrs or longer if you are a photographic buff or decide to lunch at the lookout.

This Level 3 walk up to the lookout can be taken as part of a circuit track for those who want to see a little more of the abundant flora and fauna the park has to offer. The track is a rocky and steep but well maintained and suited to people with a good level of fitness. It is not recommended for those with health or mobility problems.

About the Author:

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people. My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch. My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
