Monument Hill Walking Track

Natural Attractions

If you take a walk along the Monument Hill walking track, you’ll be rewarded with the sight of casuarinas in the heathlands, spectacular coastal views, and the fresh sea breeze upon your cheeks as you approach the summit.

The monument itself was built as a tribute to German internees who passed away in Trial Bay Gaol during World War One. Along the walk you’ll see many flannel flowers, planted by the internees because they reminded them of edelweiss and of home.

If you do feel like a longer walk, you can join the Bridle trail and loop back via Powder Magazine walking track, and if you’d like a break, you can enjoy a picnic or go for a paddle around Little Bay picnic area.
