  • Another nice spot to visit for great views. Easily accessible by 4WD (unable to comment any other vehicle capability). Another great wooden bench seat which seem to form a theme across the parks...

  • Great views along the valley from this lookout. A great place for sunrise. The road in is a bit rough and there is only a small turning circle and basically no parking once you arrive at the lookout. Still managed to get the motorhome in though! Less tree blockage than the nearby Split Rock Lookout, so you actually get a better view from here.
  • Well worth the effort to drive out to the spot to see the view of the Hill End diggings that Merlin photographed. Despite the road being dirt, you should have no trouble getting out here with a 2WD. As an added bonus, if you are into geocaching, there is a cache within 50m of the lookout.
