Do yourself a favour and don your walking shoes and make the short but steepish climb to this lookout! You wont be disappointed. Its an amazing view at the top and you can see all the over the bay.

What a gem this is. We were so lucky with the beautiful clear weather we had a great visit. The views are exceptional. A reasonably short walk albeit steep in places it’s well worthwhile. A very generous gift from the land owners. 👍👍

If the weather is good you must go up there. The view is spectacular. You can see the coast line and the town.

It’s an easy walk up the hill and you get a great view of the bay and town in front and a meadow full of sheep behind.

This is super easy to get to from Apollo bay. The view at the top is just gorgeous. Provides a lovely look up and down the coast.

Great lookout. Read the info on the gate before you go up. If its raining expect to get your shoes wet!

You can ride up to the car park area - it is a proper roadway. Then lock your bike or walk it up on the last part of the pathway (would only be perhaps 500m for last part). Sorry can't help you about other bike tracks.
