While staying in the area we went up to the lookout. Nothing really there but it does give you good views out over the city of Ballarat. You can also take steps down into what looks like a quarry site , looks like there are lots of bike tracks there.

Hidden treasure. Black hill lookout. Awesome scenic views just out of town. Lots of great walks and picnic areas. Take the push bikes.

I agree with other reviewers that the view from here is very average, lots of trees and bush's blocking the view. And what you can actually see is basic. There is supposedly a walking track around here, but could see no sign of this. What I did love was that nobody was here. There is like 50 car spots and I was the only person. Great place if you just wanna get away from everything.…

Not sure what is so good about this, did not see much at all so not worth the drive up this hill! It was not that high and view was mostly blocked by bushes or trees.

On a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon my friends and I headed up to Black Hill. Two of us hadn't been before and our guide was very enthusiastic. Lots of different length nature walks, from the type that suits a lazy ambler, me, to something for the more enthusiastic and robust, none of us. There are marked trails and a sheltered picnic area. It's also a favourite BMX type area. I also saw a couple of motorbikes heading down one track.. I think this is not allowed. Lovely views of the area including Wendouree but I needed a pair of binoculars to have a decent look at points of interest. Worth a look.…
