Lookout rock.
Dec. 2020 • Friends
Enjoyable but a bit strenuous walk to devils cave and then onto lookout rock. Disappointed to see a memorial plaque stuck onto rock face. Not the place for it.

Not really a cave
Jan. 2020
Completed the Devil's Cave and Viewing Rock Lookout circuit on a warmish morning. The trail starts at powder magazine and winds its way around to the cave and the lookout. We took a leisurely pace and stopped frequently to admire the view and checkout the local wildlife (birds, wallaby's, insects and lizards). The path is rocky so recommend boots and trekking polls if you have dodgy ankles. The cave isn't really a cave, rather a large rock with a small gap between it and the trail. You can circumnavigate it if you're into playing Spiderman for a minutle. The trail between the cave and the lookout is mostly single file. There are some trail markers throughout but the signage is not good. All in all a good hike of moderate difficulty. There are no facilities one this trail.

The view is average

Took the car up but better suited to a 4wd. The track is not very even for family sedans. Wanted to walk up but a bit far with young kids.

Moderate walk
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We did the circuit walk, including viewing rock, powder magazine and Devils cave, totalling about 3 km. The walk itself is moderate and good for some exercise, the view over Heathcote is OK. As mentioned by others, signage could be better but follow the markers with the little triangle and you can't really go wrong. The powder magazine is probably the highlight of this walk, devils cave is harder to find but nice for kids to play in/around. Plenty of space to park your car near the Viewing rock but road up is loose rocks/ stones and can be challenging passing cars going up/down. There is a better place to park closer to the Powder magazine and start the circuit from there.

Powder Magazine, Devil’s Cave and Viewing rock circut
Jul. 2018 • Family
Really great circuit, but signage is a real issue! From the Powder Magazine to Devil’s Cave wasn’t too bad, signs needed repair but could follow. But finding the viewing rock caused a few problems, lack of signs/hard to decipher which way arrows went. We enjoyed it all in all but walked an extra few km.

Easy climb for the view
Jun. 2018 • Friends
Followed the signs to the lookout mainly for the exercise.unfortunately poor visibility spoiled the view but good potential for better weather. We then continued on to the Devils cave. Signs need to be repaired as nearly walked past. This would be more for the exercise as not very large.

Decent view and walk
Apr. 2018 • Couples
Not realising you can walk up from the Main Street, we drove to the Viewing Rock car park. The view is pretty good, not exactly outstanding though. We walked a couple of kilometres to the cave and then wandered on for a few more kilometres around one of the tracks. We had hoped to walk an 8km loop following two tracks but one of the group picked up an injury so we headed back early. The main track has been reasonably well graded. The other track to the cave is much smaller, one person at a time, and can be very rocky and unsteady. We enjoyed the time up here. Very quiet and peaceful, only met two other groups. Nothing particularly spectacular but a pleasant wander.

Lovely views over Heathcote. Track up there more suitable for 4wd. Short walk to view from car park. Picnic tables available.

Worth visiting if you are spending any time in Heathcote. Best viewed on a sunny day. Provides good view over Heathcote and surrounding areas.

Great place to look down on Heathcote
Jul. 2017 • Couples
We drove to this location but it would make a great hike. The clouds in the blue sky overlooked the village of Heathcote and it was like looking down on Legoland with views for miles it appeared to be the ideal little rural escape so many are after. Would be interesting if there were a storyboard indicating other landmarks, places of interest or wineries so one could get a better perspective of location in relation to the region, which is often overshadowed/overlooked by busy Bendigo & its environs.
