  • Definitely worth it. You need to travel along an unsealed road for 5 minutes but it is fine in any car. Just don’t go too fast and not quite enough room in places for 2 cars. You might see wallabies.....  more

  • Just go there on a sunny day, take a picnic and enjoy the incredible view. Make sure you walk along the (unsigned) track to the proper lookout, amazing.
  • Great lookout over the upper King Valley. Lots of history to learn about the bushranger Harry Power. Make sure you go to the second lookout which is about 900 metres away and does require some steep stairways, but well worth the effort, with an even more expansive view.
  • Hidden away down a dirt road, got there early and the only one there. Small quick 10 minute walk each way, worth the drive and the walk. Beautiful country Victoria
  • Good spot to stop for a break, great views of the King Valley. For a toilet break I'd recommend using the public ones in Whitfield. The bush toilets at Powers can be a bit rough.
  • A great view of a lovely valley. A short drive 3km to a lookout along a treed very Australian track. A secondary lookout down the valley another direction from the same spot is worth it, however, involves some very steep steps that may not suit all.
