Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The views of both the Stirling and Porongurup mountain ranges is great. Helpful information boards explain what one is seeing. There’s a nice very short forest walk with a very manageable elevated tree canopy walk. Thankfully the trees aren’t as tall as those in the Valley of the Giants!

Close to town, the lookout has great views of the Porongorups and Stirling Ranges. Information boards interesting. Perhaps suprising not to have toilets at a tourist spot.

It was great being a caravan friendly tourist attraction, no problems with parking and wonderful views over countryside.

I was staying nearby so I hiked up to this look out. I was lucky enough to have beautiful overcast weather with a smattering of rain and cool breezes which made the walk and the views very enjoyable. You can just about see everything from up here - amazing panoramic views of the Stirling Ranges & The Porongorups. Unfortunately there is no drinking fountain or toilets up here but that’s to be expected. I thought The Broadcast Station up here quite fascinating but it’s all obviously closed to the public because it’s (again obviously) a very vital piece of infrastructure and not a tourist attraction! The Rotary lookout is a wonderful thing with 3 wonderful information boards about the views, the terrain and history of the region. I would highly recommend making the trek all the drive up here.

This site is on the Mount Barker Heritage trail and also known as Mount Barker Rotary Club Lookout and the aboriginal name Pwakkenbak. An on-site plaque commemorates the initial climbing of the mound by Dr. Thomas Braidwood Wilson and party in 1829 during an expedition from Albany. Another plaque erected by the Plantagenet Historical Society commemorates the pioneer women of the Plantagenet District. The Tourist Information Centre recommends that you have binoculars to take advantage of the site and the 'forever' views. See the Wind Farm, the Stirling Ranges, the Porongurups, the farms and much more.
Nearby is the Telecommunications Tower standing 184m high, once the tallest unsupported structure in the southern hemisphere and opened in 1966 to facilitate ABC Television Broadcasts. There are various information panels erected on site. Worth a visit for the historical significance of the location.
