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.

Great lookout. Stunning views and an easy drive. We brought lunch and enjoyed ourselves. Very quiet place and no one around.

A great lookout to picnic on a sunny day or just to get an amazing 270 degree view of surrounding area over Maria Island and up to The Hazards and Coles Bay. Only approx 6 klms out of Orford. A picnic table and small roofed shelter. There are some walks up the mountain but iIhave not done. The road is sealed for 4 klms out of Orford and then gravel road in good condition. The road up to lookout can have a few washouts but usually able to be negoitiated by 2wd if taken carefully.

I reckon that I would have had some difficulty in negotiating my way to the lookout but, thanks to my Garmin, it was a breeze. It's approx. 6km from Orford with the last 4km on a very well maintained dirt track. Nice slow drive up and the fantastic views from the lookout area were just what we were told to expect. There is a couple of information signs, a fire pit, picnic tables and a small shelter. Great spot for bushwalking enthusiasts. Our only downer; not a bird or animal sighted.

great views and well worth the effort to drive up there. One can see up and down the east coast. There are also explanatory signs and parking.

This place is truly magical
A good drive in on a gravel road.
Ample parking at the lookout and a picnic area with a hut for shelter.
Glorious views of Maria Island and surrounds.
Gorgeous native plants flowering in March also added to the pleasure of the lookout
Definitely recommend if in area

It's a gravel road for a bit, and narrow at times, but the view over Oyster Bay and Maria Island makes it worth the trip. Lovely really.

A short drive from the township iof Orford, well worth a look. The views are amazing, great photo opportunities. A nice place to sit and eat a picnic lunch with a wonderful group of friends.
