This is also known as Boranup Lookout. You need a four wheel drive vehicle to get here. Travel through the Karri Trees of Boranup Forrest to see the two oceans (Indian and Southern) meet.

Yes, this is a lookout, but there is nothing in particular to see. Probably wouldn’t bother driving out to it unless you’re stretching for activities.

At the time we went to visit the lookout the council had a large tractor cutting the vegetation back 2 metres from each side and we interupted him in the carpark. Seeing the track still going up we drove to the peak only to realise...More
