On Foot

There is a walking trail from the Bargara foreshore to Mon Repos.  It will take at least 45 minutes or up to 1 hour (depending on your fitness level) and, for conservation reasons, there is no lighting, so make sure you bring a torch.  We strongly encourage you to make sure you do the walking trail prior to your tour date, as things are very different in the dark and people sometimes get lost on the trail at night!

Please note: There is no public transport to Mon Repos.
