Experienced only
The walk from Hobart Beach camping area to Bondi Lake is an interesting one, mostly running parallel to the lake, which you can’t see, till the very end. The walk is shaded for most of the way due to the thick heath surrounding the track until it opens out onto Bondi Lake (dry when we walked it).* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.
