It takes just 20 minutes to get to the top and you have an amazing view of Nelson. If it is a sunny day it is really nice.

The walk was quite short but I loved it there. I would recommend it for families and older people. The view is worth it.

Walk was nice enough but not all that interesting. View was good though.

Nice walk - can be done with a stroller though a little steep at times. Excellent view over Nelson and bay.

It's quite steep (hard work) but worth the views when you reach the top :D.

The walk was nice with views over Nelson and sea, but the centre itself isn't overly special.
