Starting near the Trial Bay Gaol car park on Trial Bay Gaol Access Road, Arakoon, this walk takes you on a circuit around Monument Hill via the Monument Hill Walking Track, Powder Magazine Walking Track and the Bridle Trail. This moderately short and easy walk winds its way around Monument Hill within Arakoon National Park, offering spectacular coastal views, whale watching opportunities and glimpses into the area's history. The walk begins near the Trial Bay Gaol, which was once a public works prison, housing inmates building the local breakwall. Following the Monument Hill Walking Track, the walk initially climbs to the hill's summit, passing the German Monument, a stone obelisk built by German internees in honour of their companions who passed away in the gaol during WWI. Shortly ahead, the walk passes the Trial Bay Lookout, which offers panoramic views of Trial Bay Gaol and the Pacific Ocean. After reaching Little Bay Beach, the walk follows the Bridle Trail, then continues along the Powder Magazine Walking Track, passing the historic Powder Magazines before returning to the starting point. Many flannel flowers can be seen throughout the walk, planted by the Germans to remind them of home. This loop consists of wide and narrow walking trails with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, compacted gravel surfaces, sealed surfaces and short steep hills. Suitable for most fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
