Certificate of Excellence

Great little place with commanding views of the whole area, it’s wonderful to see how blessed we are in this great country. Which ever way we looked there were great sites to see, worth a visit or two to enjoy the great views.

Wonderful place to view the area, the road to the top of the lookout is very narrow and I wonder what would happen if we had met another car, there was a short walk up a well constructed concrete ramp that we were able to negotiate with ease despite our aging joints and the view was spectacular

There are 2 lookouts here: one near the carpark and one a short walk up past the mobile towers (what bureaucrat decided that the most scenic point in town merited having these monstrosities installed in that location!!??) The gymea lilies grow like weeds in this area and have the most enormous flower spikes. I have never seen such a profusion and they add a unique character to the location. Would not like to try accessing this in peak summer season as the road is very narrow and there is no room to manoeuvre at the top so if there are lots of people trying to get there at one time this could lead to traffic mayhem!

Nice views of the water but trees are in the way so for a better view would go to Tomaree Mountain but this is good if you don't want to walk up and just want to drive.
