It really wasn't with disappointment that we learned this place is currently closed. This is the highest point on the island I believe, and this is where Matthew Flinders climbed, so that he could easily see that it indeed was an island. 502 steps -...More

The island has a spectacular range of seascapes and landscapes. From the lookout at Prospect Hill, you could see the waves breaking on Pennington Bay round to Pelican Lagoon. Well, you could but it’s been closed for months for repairs to the steps. So go...More

Signs were there but it was closed off- not sure for repairs or what? Looked like a very steep climb but could imagine the view from the top would have been incredible

I am only rating it poor because it is currently closed for safety reasons. This is understandable but of course disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing the views from the top. Luckily the island is full of good views!

As the title sys, we almost missed seeing the attraction. It is not far from Penneshaw but is a steep climb from the car park to the top. Well worth the effort to climb.
