“great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Puts York into perspective with regard to surrounds. Worth a visit for the far reaching views which are quite spectacular.

“What a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Took sights in from here early morning and saw the town through a beautiful fog that settled over town. Lovely place to visit.

“Great Views”

This place is great for astronomers to get a fantastic view point. Quiet very dark and away from light pollution. Highly recommend as a night viewing platform.

“Should be a must do for all York Visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Mount Brown Lookout is situated several minutes from the main street of York. Sealed road takes you to the parking area (watch out for the odd kangaroo)and then a small walk up to the lookout. (easy walk, a couple of stairs).
Best way to view York and get a prospective of how the early settlers planned the townsite. 360 degrees as far as the eye can see. Take favorite wine and cheese and watch one of the famous York sunsets. Seating at the top provided. Indigenous story describes the formation of the two "mounts"
Lovely during spring (seeing all the crops in flower and wildflowers bloom). Must do when in York regardless of the season.

“360 degree view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

to get a sense of size and scale of York drive up to the look out. the Avon river is so small...and ends up as the Swan River, that is the feature of Perth CBD. nice tributes to the residents who had the insight to set this up.
