Good 360 degree views from this old lookout on a good vantage point of a granite headland overlooking the harbour. Signage to find it was surprisingly absent from Twilight Beach Road, which does not help tourists from other countries much - still it was bound to be at the highest point I guess.

we had the walk all to ourselves. we got to stop and watch the wedge-tail eagles hunting, the dragonflies sunning themselves and take some fantastic nature shots of water, nature and flora. it was a treat I'll do everytime we're in Esperance.

The lookout sits at the western end of the town and behind the grain port.It provides great views of the beaches to the east and the island to the south as well as views back to the town.The walk consists of some board walks, but most is on the granite stone that makes up the hill.

We did not go for a walk along the trail but went up to the look out, what a wonderful sight, you can see the whole of Esperance as well as the ocean and as far as the Pink Lake. Fantastic place to take photos from

Ok, so my friend and I cheated and only did the Rotary Lookout here however the views are fantastic - 360 degree views over the ocean and town was amazing and well worth the dozen or steps to the top.

Nice walk with spectacular views. Not for those with difficulty walking as quite steep and rocky in sections

This walk takes about 25 minutes and is well worth it. Wear decent shoes as there are some gravel paths, stairs and rocky bits. The views are wonderful and there is a beautiful picnic table about half way around if you want a rest. You get a different view than from the top so its worth the walk.

The views of Esperance and the ocean from the Rotary lookout are excellent, there are two short walks which offer some of the best views in the area. Definitely worth the effort. Please note some of the tracks are on rocks and a little steep - definitely not accessible by wheelchair or with prams. Recommend to wear enclosed (walking) shoes.
