  • The best things about this lookout was the walk from the carpark up to the lookout and viewing tower. The view wasn't anything to write home about, and unfortunately the trees are starting to get a bi...  more »

  • Good view to be had but not quite 360 as the trees have grown too tall for the platform. Note some level of fitness required for an uphill climb of about 500m and then a 48-step high structure... worth the trip if you want some exercise.
  • Worth the 420m hike to the summit but don't forget the Aeroguard because the bugs attack in big numbers. We used branches to swat them away & we wern't prepared for the semi tough climb but still a good place to visit, the view is awesome. The bush turkeys also lurk in the bushes.
  • Long walk but nice view..
  • Nice panoramic view from the top. Just watch the mosquitos
  • Great views of the surroundings. Keep an eye out for the bush turkeys scratching about in the bush.
