  • The place has beautiful oceanic view. Ideal for watching sunsets and sun risings.
  • The view from the top is it's own reward. While I was there an Asian family who didn't speak english gestured if I could take their photo, i nodded and said yes and afterwards I pointed at my phone and gestured if they would return the favour. They were very happy to help but the look of horror on their faces when I jumped the fence and stood smiling right on the edge was priceless! Hahaha. Thanks for the fun memories random friends
  • Nothing wrong with the lookout, apart from perhaps a substantial lack of seating, but the number of idiots that come here, with music, high beams and cigarettes blairing over the wonderful serenity of the ocean at night, ruins the experience drastically. Basically feels like movie night at the local primary school with the kids. Awesome place to spot planes flying in from Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne and other places, better lookouts in other places though, if youre a plane watcher.
  • Beautiful coastal views with lovely walk on the way
  • It was a great walk trip to the Tumgun Lookout where has beautiful ocean views. Windy and lovely ocean views would be a great place for relaxing.
