I am only rating it poor because it is currently closed for safety reasons. This is understandable but of course disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing the views from the top. Luckily the island is full of good views!

A steep walk that's not for the feint hearted or infirm! Well worth the effort as the views are spectacular! Go on a cool day or in the morning!

It is well worth climbing the 511 steps up to the Prospect Hill lookout, the 360 degree views are absolutely stunning. There are also some very interesting information boards on Matthew Flinders and on the wildlife you may encounter in the area. You cannot fail...More

This is quite a stair climb which I did slowly (in my 60s) but well worth the effort even after a full day of touring! You can see both sides of the island from this lookout and it is a spectacular view!
