Well worth the short drive to the location...nice photo opportunity, overlooking Twofold Bay across to Wonboyn area. Only requires a few minutes to appreciate the views. Toilets handy as well

A great view and photo-point from this well made lookout with a seat so you can enjoy the vista at length. Car park good for a picnic. Better then views at lighthouse for me, weather can interrupt the view especially sea mist.

Is what you will say when you first take in the view from this lookout located in Ben Boyd National Park: jaw-droppingly brilliant with views forever. A definite must see on the way to the Green Cape Lighthouse and as it is just off the road it is accessible to everyone (no big treks to see this lookout :-) ).... More

The view is definitely not a disaster as you gaze toward Wonboyn and Victoria. Take a picnic and relax and enjoy the view.

On our way to the Snorkelling Scott stopped of at the lookout, you get a real perspective of the remoteness of this area when you look due south, miles and miles of empty coastline. Wow.

Actually this view is literally right in my backyard. On a clear day one can see right on down to the Victorian border areas. It's also great fr whale watching and just taking it all in.

Apart from the spectacular views you should stop here to pay the $8.00 per vehicle Park Entry fee. These funds go to the upkeep of the National Parks you are currently enjoying. The small lookout here has stunning views down to Disaster Bay. On a clear day you can literally see for miles. We have a 4WD so he drive... More
