“The perfect view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Fantastic view! Perfect location for viewing Port stephens.
When I went it was a little hazy but we could still see all of the surrounding islands and it's only a short walk from the carpark.
The only fault is that you walk past what looks to be an electrical station which isn't the prettiest, but that doesn't detract from anything else

“Pretty but not beautiful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

There is no cost to visit, but there isn't a lot to see. Good for a quick stop but not much more. No picnic facilities, no food available, just two areas to look out and sort of see beaches.

“Best lookout area I've been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Absolutely best lookout area I have been to in a long while. Views are spectacular but so is the surrounding picnic areas facilities and walks. We did the rainforest walk Took about 40 minutes and had steps and some rough natural patches but was a lovely experience. There is a short paved area for wheelchairs but does have an incline
