  • Great views and lots of photography opportunities. Parking is relatively easy. Faces multiple directions so you can see lots of scenery including sunset. Use care when driving up as sealed road is narrow for two way traffic.
  • As with a couple of the other reviews, we were unfortunate enough to get grey, overcast skies when we visited but it didn't take away from the views. It's a great place to start your trip as you can spot all of the little beaches and towns. Helpfully, there's sign and boards that will tell you little snippets of info as to what you're looking at. It's well paved and the incline to the main viewing platform is not steep at all.
  • Stunning panorsmic views of Nelson Bay and hinterland. Disabled access, child safe.
  • Awesome views, must do if you are in the area.
  • great views of nelson bay from here
