Nice spot to visit, to see the Tamworth area. It was very windy but the sun was nice. Would be nice to have a BBQ, I plan on doing this next time I bring the family to Tamworth.

Well worth a stop. Lovely views and some beautiful shade trees. Great place for a picnic lunch or pit stop. Picnic tables and chairs on site. Best of all it's free!

This is a must visit place for visitors to Tamworth. The views over the city are great. It is also the start of walking tracks up to Flagstaff Mountain. The lookout is specially nice around sunset.
