Having said that, the first part of the walk is the hardest - it's a very steep climb up uneven rocks but once you are at the top the view is amazing and continues to get better as you make your way over the uneven surface. Don't pick up bits of rock to break, the rangers don't like this, nor do they like you breaking twigs of the trees or picking the pretty flowers!
There are several viewing points along the walk and several with boards explaining how the rocks were formed, there is an interesting section that looks like sand ripples, this was formed when the sea was here (a bit freaky given how far you are from the sea now). After climbing down a huge number of steps and over a bridge before you take the steps back up the other side, go under the steps and follow the path to the Garden of Eden - it's not well signposted and so is a quiet little waterhole complete with ducks, a refreshing break in the shade. Don't sit too long, think of the rising temperature and head back along the same path to climb those dreaded steps. Now the worst really is over and you can head along the rim on the other side before the path peels away and leads you back down to the carpark. It's possible to do this in 2 hours in winter, but if it's hot, allow more time.
