Guringai Walk

And Walk






45 mins

1.2 km Circuit


80 m

Moderate track

This is a surprisingly spectacular walk, following the base of the cliff below St Johns Lookout. From the car park, you will follow a gentle track through the bush before heading down some stairs to the cliff face. Handrails and timber walkways have been installed to make this walk more accessible. You will pass some large Angophora, Blackbutts and plenty of fern trees. A highlight of the walk comes when you follow the ledge next right next to the cliff.
