  • I decided to climb right up the Tower and enjoyed the views on each side and all the way up. It's great to see the whole of the harbour, surrounding area, etc. The steps are safe and good.  more »
  • Drove up to Mr Melville on Christmas eve. We saw many skinks around... Harmless I heard, but better to be alert.. Nice place to have a birds eye view of Albany city and the coast... We had the whole p...  more »
  • The lookout has great views over all of Albany and the coast, we walked past the first point to some of the outcrops on the other side facing towards the wind farm, the ground is a bit uneven in this ...  more »

  • I really like the Mt Melville Lookout. It is simple and well placed to give you an awesome view of Albany and the surrounding area. Toilets at the base of the tower are an extra bonus. The parking is easy, some shady spots. The steps up the tower are easy and each of the three platforms or levels have ample room to walk around. A very safe activity for the whole family. There are walks in and out of Mt Melville, if walking is your thing and chairs strategically placed to sit and enjoy the views. Carparks are easily accessible by a normal car. Give it a try. Outdoors is always good fun. If you happen to be in Albany on New Year's Eve, there is a great vantage point to see the fireworks display. Albany really has a lot to offer and this is one of those notable places to visit.
  • I love this place! Go up the 'spark plug' by all means but also follow some of the paths at the top on the harbour side of the mountain for amazing views over the city and further, from huge slabs of granite, and if you're lucky, wildflowers and king skinks! Very special place.
  • Great views of the surrounding area. Facilities lacking a bit with an opportunity to pull more tourists up the hill to enjoy the views and buy a coffee. Would be a great hike although we were slack and drove instead.
  • Excellent views of the Albany area, well planned road access and even restrooms at the lookout tower.
  • Short climb to top of tower for great views of Albany and beyond. Windy and cold at the top! Benches and toilets available at base. There is short walk on boulders around the tower. Highly recommend
