  • Passing through on a rainy day and had a quick look. Nice beach and would be good for divers. Glimpse of history.

  • Visited on Wednesday 26th February. We saw the sign and pulled over to have a look. Well maintained memorial with info boards giving the history of HMAS Hobart. Well worth stopping to have a look.

  • Beautiful view and the beach down the bottom has some amazing rocks that would be great paperweights it also has pink quartz.
  • Beautiful place to sit back and relax with a nice view of the sea from above, especially in the evenings.
  • Interesting spot to learn about the fate of D39 HMAS Hobart that ended up as a diving attraction 12ish km west of this lookout
  • A stunning view along the Gulf St Vincent coast. This area is directly off Main South Rd. It offers excellent views of the coast along with information of the HMAS Hobart which lays on the ocean floor nearby. A great location to pull over, stretch the legs and take in the beautiful coastline. *Note, be careful exiting this location back onto the main road. Although the road has good vision, the traffic goes by fast and will come up faster than you may expect. Oh and stick to the left side of the road! This has been a significant issue in the past...
  • This is a decent lookout that you can pull over into easily. Seating is available close to the water’s edge and a picnic table is available a bit further away. My partner and I did a short hike down to the water. We met a park ranger who said he saw some baby brown snakes, so be careful if you go for the short hike down to the water.
