Good views of Bunbury and surrounds. Well worth the climb. Good to climb on a summers evening and catch the breeze at the top.

This is a must-visit place in Bunbury. It gives you a 360-degree of the city and the coastline, and enables you to see how all the other places you want to visit 'fit together'.

Great 360 views of Bunbury! Good walking distance. But nothing that fantastic of an attraction. Can get windy on top.

Its not for the infirm, or if you have knee problems. The walk to the tower uphill all the way so take a breath at the bottom. The hike to the top is worth it. Enjoy the 360 views & the breeze.

Small climb from a very small car park. Good views around Bunbury and the harbour. Worth a quick visit.

A fairly steep climb to the top of the lookout but definitely worth it. Gorgeous 360 degree views. A small car park (6 cars) so timing is everything.
