  • Just awesome! Great wandering around soaking up the history while listening to a male lyrebird going off!
  • Awesome lookout, which has some interesting history about Harry Power and links to the Kelly gang. Great spot for a stopover. Shelter area with a open fire place, drop toilets and tank water.
  • Stunning views across to the Snowy Mountains.
  • Not a very popular spot, it was pretty empty when I was there but the view of the valley is superb!! You get the option to either just see the views on the platform near the carpark, or you can do the longer walk through rock formations (cliffs are well fenced off, well maintained track, it's fine to bring your kids along) to another viewing platform which has a broader view of the mountains. Would definitely recommend!
  • Great views to the west with interesting history.
