Monument Hill Walking Track, New South Wales


Featuring stunning coastal views, the easy Monument Hill walk takes in the historic monument built for German gaol internees before finishing at Little Bay picnic area. Distance: 1.4km one-way. Duration: 30 mins - 1 hour. If you take a walk along the Monument Hill walking track, youll 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 I. Along the walk youll 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 youd like a break, you can enjoy a picnic or go for a paddle around Little Bay picnic area.

A relatively easy walk up short steep hill to the German monument along a formed track. Keep going up the hill on dirt track for fabulous views of the Gaol and bay. Head down the hill to Little Bay. Return via a short track and then follow the road back to the start or the cafe for a drink.
