  • We stopped here at the end of the first day of our 2-day Great Ocean Road tour. It's a good little hike up a well-maintained trail to this perfect viewpoint. The view overlooking Apollo Bay, as well a...  more »
  • Went here to see the views over Apollo bay and we weren’t disappointed. Only a small car park however. Also the walk is short only about 300 metres but it is very steep in places, no stairs though. Ho...  more »
  • It's a long walk from the nearby parking lot, but you can see Apollo Bay from the hills. I was impressed by the scenery that was different from what I saw nearby. If you have time, it is recommended.

  • Great view of Apollo Bay and Marengo. For the fitness fanatics, it's a rewarding walk up the hill from great ocean road. There are bins in the car park. Be careful not to let the sheep out, close all gates after you walk through. It has changed a lot over the past 30 years.
  • An amazing view from top of the mountain. You could sit there and relax for hours. The parking can be a bit hard to find but on slow days it doesn't matter. There a bit of a climb up there but the walk itself is just beautiful. You feel like you are in a jungle surrounded by trees. There were no toilets in sight. Definitely take some water up there.
  • Was a great place to grow up as a kid in the 60's and 70's. Sadly the commercial reality of tourism has well and truly taken hold of The Bay and changed the vibe completely. Still a great beach - one of Victoria's best.
  • About 6km return from information center to the lookout. Very challenging walk, suggest to drive to the lookout parking place then spend 5minutes to walk to the lookout. Good view from top of the mountain.
  • Great view but it's only a hill. Would be good to have some signage for what you are looking at. Or a little history behind the name
