If only they would remove the power lines!

This has to be one of the finest coastal views in Australia - looking out to the Bass Strait across Corner Inlet to the northern peaks of Wilsons Promontory National Park and to Waratah Bay. Jaw-droppingly gorgeous, except for those overhead powerlines that are unavoidable in any camera shot. Move the power lines and it would be a 10/10 experience.

Probably an awesome view, but couldn't see it clearly
Aug 2018 • Couples
The view from this high point is amazing, but the lookout has trees blocking the view as well as powerlines. They really need to build a lookout tower that rises above those, and also keep the trees pruned to a manageable height.
A better view is to be had when driving down the track to the lookout, across a farm just before the lookout.
Definitely worth a visit though, just in case things have improved. And your view will of course be weather dependent too. Really clear air is needed so see the mountains of Wilsons Prom. If it is hazy then they may not be visible at all.

Deserted lookout with fantastic views
Jan 2018 • Couples
We stopped here expecting to find a lot of people, as we had everywhere else - but nobody was here! We were able to let our dog off for a run and get some fantastic photos. The only thing that would improve this is if it was up a bit higher.

Best spot for views
Dec 2017 • Couples
Best spot to get an overall idea of Wilsons Prom and surrounds which you can't get from lower down. Best on a really clear day and early morning.

power lines in way of scenic views
Nov 2017
The drive too foster and around whole promontory area is spellbinding. But a tradition of the prom is too take a photo here. Sadly views are blocked a little by powrr lines

As another reviewer has noted...
Jul 2017 • Solo
.... power lines to detract from the view somewhat.

But apart from that this is a great place to stop off quickly at because the views of Corner Inlet are brilliant. And not just on a clear day where you'll get to see lovely coastline views but even on an overcast day as there is something special about seeing mist and rain move across the bay.

Not a massive parking area but you'll be unlikely to have issues finding a park. No facilities but this is just a nice ten minute stop on your drive.

Nice Views
Aug 2017
If you are driving past, it is worth a stop. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. The power lines ruined my photo opportunities slightly but you can't do anything about that.

What a great area to visit worth a drive and a few nice places to stay . Drive through the hills from cowes through small towns it's a good day out . Look at foster on map and you can get to it from different main roads .

Worth a stop
Mar 2017 • Friends
This lookout is worthwhile stopping off at when taking a trip to Foster. It's not too far out of town and the lookout has a few picnic tables and a rotunda with some information about the local area.
