The Fairfax Walking Track is a short 15 minutes circuit track but you are more likely to take longer given the distractions along the way in the form of fantastic views and possibly some frolicking whales! The track consists of sealed surfaces which makes it easy to walk but there are a few steps involved when getting to the viewing platforms. Along the track, there are also some interpretive signs with information about whales.
