  • Wonderful view from the top and well worth a run up the hill. Fairly steep but not to long so easily manageable.  more »
  • It is best if you have a car and can drive very high. The view is really uniquely beautiful, Poatkartenfeeling. Should one not miss. More there is but not to say.

  • Spectacular view!! No matter how hot the sun is, the sea breeze is really refreshing and relaxing. Nice to take a nap or look at the clouds. You'll know if it's a good day if the water is crystal clear and royal blue. Steep hike (if you're a beginner) but summit is not really that far. Say hi to your friendly neighbourhood sheep.
  • Easy trek up a private road. We wouldn’t have gone here without the recommendation from our host at the Apollo Bay Waterfront Motor Inn. Amazing panoramic view of the place. I would probably visit again if I’m back at Apollo Bay
  • One of the best lookouts on Great Ocean Road. Never crowded as most tourists don't know about it. Great for paragliding as well. Right before Apollo Bay, turn is easy to miss. Lookout for Mariners lookout sign maybe 1.5 KMs before Apollo Bay.
  • Fantastic look out point. You can see an uninterrupted view of the sea, and if you're lucky, sheep grazing on the hill behind you! A good place to come to at night as well to see some stars. Make sure to drive up as the road is quite steep but the walk is short from there.
  • A good walk from town if you drive to car park then only 5 minutes .It is on private land so be respectful. Great views of Apollo Bay. pick a clear day if possible.
