  • Great lookout view. Wow! Scene of Albany. Visited it in the morning and enjoyed the view with cool air. In live with the panoramic view from the tower. A most recommended place to visit. Had quality time with my wife and friends.
  • 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.
  • Nothing else there but the free views. Used to have a kiosk up there in the tower, that was nice & touristy
  • 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.
