  • A great lookout. There is an alternative path back down some stairs going out the back of the lookout. Warning! We took that path (which has some amazing views), but the track stops near to the bottom. It requires some more adventurous rock climbing to continue (as far as we could see), leading to the abandoned building. I would recommend only following this path a short way (10 mins) to get the views and then turning back for the mule track or the road back down, unless you feel adventurous.
  • Excellent viewpoint. Can grab a bit of delicious madeira cake and a glass of the local brew from the refreshments kiosk and relax as you watch those airplanes come in to land down below!
