Bluff Knoll Summit Map

I saw people of ages from about 6 to 65 on the day I hiked. One fit adult had his toddler in a back-pack carrier. Quite popular with school groups. National Park Pass required ($13AUD, 2019). Steep incline, many constructed timber-enforced or rock steps, high exposure at the top, alpine changeable weather conditions, fabulous view for a picnic lunch in good weather. 1.5-2 hrs average to ascend. Well-marked, well maintained track. Large carpark fills quickly on weekends and public holidays. Although a lot of the track is well-shaded the last 3rd is very exposed.



Hiking along trails with some uneven terrain and small hills. Small rocks and roots may be present.

Medium Exposure
