We set out on our hike from Neds Beach walking steeply up grassy cow pastures till we reached the top of the first ridge where a plaque marks the site of the crash in 1942 of an RAAF Catalina Flying Boat. From here as we climbed we were able to get increasingly 270 degree panoramic view from the ridge which rose above Neds Beach until finally we emerged from the cover of the littoral rainforest at the summit of Malabar Hill(208m). Majestic views out over the Admiralty Islands and South to Mt Lidgbird and Mt Gower captivated us so much so that we lingered long taking in the wonderful vistas and ambience before heading off along the cliff edge to Kims Lookout further along the escarpment.
