    It should boot up drive and has a beautiful view over the sea, the town and the surrounding area after a short way from the parking lot. Ideal for photos.

  • We didn't expect much from this hidden lookout but it certainly delivered. You park near a little walking track and head up the hill - it can be steep in some areas but quite doable. Watch your step in wet weather. It is definitely worth it - we went on a grey morning but were blown away by the view. Highly recommend.
  • Mesmerising views. Don't be put off by the trail up the hill. The walk is only short and definitely worth it.
  • Amazing location to take sunrise or evening photos from above Apollo Bay. Also a great launch area for a drone as some other people were doing. You walk up a private path to the paddock area, sign says it's open between 6am-10pm
  • While there are no facilities at the top, and the walk is reasonably steep, it is more than worth it. I highly recommend visiting here if you're travelling on the Great Ocean Road, because you get a fantastic view of Apollo Bay to the west and the coast to the east. A must see!
  • Beautiful spot to visit especially for tourist's that want to see Apollo Bay from up high.
