Don't drive passed here. It's about 20 minutes from Khancoban. It is an amazing view. There is information about the lookout.

Great views across the mountains. A short drive to the carpark which has toilets and there is no extra walking to the scenic view point.

A good place to stop and stretch your legs on the Alpine Way drive between Khancoban and Thredbo. There is a small "boardwalk" to the right of the main lookout. Great views.

This is a mega drive to take. The views are stunning! We went over in snow and it was beautiful although from the lookout it was more of a white out so didn't see much at this stop but from what we saw the rest...More

Easy 100m turn off Alpine Way, parking opposite lookout, clean toilets, and the best bit, great views. Get your driver to pullover, he can afford the 10 minutes max you need here to take in the surrounds.
