  • A nice place for a panoramic shot of Dunedin. The road going to the Look Out is narrow so take care when driving. It is popular with cyclist as well. There are mountain bike tracks and a walking trail in the area. No other facilities such as toilets available.
  • Nice view, even in autumn. Just remember to take good shoes because it's a bit muddy on the way.
  • Really great place for mountain biking! Nice, well maintained tracks and very nice and easy uphill "big easy". Very nice view from the top, you can walk, drive or bike up.
  • Amazing view especially around sunset time. Would definitely recommend
  • Great views looking south over Dunedin, amazing mountain bike tracks with a good mix for abilities, and walking/running trails.
