We were lucky to have good weather when we visited to appreciate such a lovely place with many stunning views , there are some narrow and winding roads on the peninsula but nothing untoward.

My friends recommended us to visit Pinnacles to see sunrise and sunset from the top. It was quite hard for us to walk as it was first time to clime the mountain, but we could see a beautiful sunrise and scenery. We stayed the hut for 1 night ($15/day, pp) and it is tidy and clean and provided some pans,... More
