Great views

Have stopped here many times and love the views and the history attached to this spot. Lovely place for a picnic. Good walk from Mt Pitt.

Amazing views from here, and interesting history, We went later in the day, and it was great to watch the sea birds doing their amazing flying.

Have traveled a lot and don't think I have ever seen a view quite like the one I saw here. Absolutely breath taking (at least on the day we visited!)

You can drive your car to the carpark with only a short walk down the hill to the monument. A good place to see first with clifftop views, Norfolk Pines and abundant birdlife.

Windy but again beautiful. The scenery out to the ocean, the rock formation, each with its own name, ie- Cathedral rock, all are visited by the birds as a refuge. Again the area seems to be well maintained. Very peaceful.

Bit of a walk to the monument but well worth it if you're able. Stunning views. The bird life was worth observing and the area is well maintained.

This picnic and viewing spot is beautifully kept and maintained. Toilets too. Grassy areas and plenty of tables. Views breathtaking. When you have had enough of this view head to Bedrock Cafe opens at 11am, for morning tea or lunch - it's just around the corner.

This is a truly spectacular place on the island with barbecue facilities, solar powered bathrooms and a view which almost rivals Mount Pitt. It is different to Mount Pitt and is where it is Captain Cook first saw Norfolk Island. The scenery is spectacular and there is shade under the trees. Make sure you see this if you are in... More

FANTASTIC scenic views from the DOWNHILL peak from the monument, but a killer walk back up hill! (Worth it though) - Take your BEST camera with you, as you don't (WON'T) walk back up the hill to get it from the car! (Ask me how I know!) hahaa
