Stunning views from lookout. Picnic table and walking track. Beautiful scenery . Pick a clear day or you won't see very far. It's a dirt road a little rough but well worth the drive.

I've done this walk several times with different friends (of different fitness levels). The best view is from the Thumbs Lookout in the carpark, although there are many spots for good views, a pause (and to catch breath) along the track. Track easy to follow...More

A beautiful drive, as we came from sorell, magnificent tall blue gums on the drive. The lookout was incredible, magnificent all round veiw of the local islands surrounded by our beautiful blue ocean. Worth the stop.

Sadly the low cloud obscured a lot of the view but you could imagine what incredible views there would have been on a better day. The road was rather rugged for the first 4 kms and we were glad we were in our 4WD although...More

After traversing a rough road we were rewarded. This lookout is well worth visiting. We were lucky enough to be there when a Park Ranger was and she gave us so much more information on the whole area.

Went here alone to pass some time, and boy did I enjoy myself! The views are just amazing. I wanted to do the hike as well, but couldn't find it unfortunately.

Driving a small car at 10-15km an hour as there were so many rocks on the road. Not a great deal of signage either. The view was great however after getting super anxious driving there I'm not sure it was worth the stress.
