If you want the best view in the region, this is the place to go - AMAZING!!!! Practically 360 degree views from this vantage point, along with picnic tables set amongst the shade. Toilets available and plenty of parking.

Well worth the Drive up. Spectacular viewing for the region, with great little walks through the forest. Great Area for a Picnic, Road Sealed all the way to top, a Fairly long drive up, with Limited amenities. A Real Peaceful Area.
