Had a walk up this track recently and it was well worth the steep, though short climb. The views at the top and the history of the area was amazing. Worth a look.

This lookout provides you with a great view of the town when you eventually get to the top. However the pathway is very steep and not easiest to climb. There is also some interesting mine memorabilia at the lookout site.

So glad we found this awesome lookout in Queenstown Tasmania. Provides such great views of the town of Queenstown, as well as the surrounding mountains, mines etc, along with helping us to understand some more of the history of Tassie's Queenstown.
