This is a just OK lookout as the views of Launceston were blocked by trees. There are good views looking towards the Tamar River Valley but the place is not that well developed and not worth the effort.

Travel up there by car to get the view. It is restricted by trees which is understandable, maybe thoughts into building a tower would help....

Easy to find thanks to trip advisor. Great spot to soak up the Tamar Valley and sun. Worth the drive up even for a few minutes.

Unkept site with limited views and facilities tucked away in a residential suburb. Not worth going off the beaten track for

This is probably the only place to get a scenic view of the city of Launceston, however sadly it does not seem all that well-maintained. It would benefit from some interpretive signage and removal of obscene graffiti. Also the view is obscured by overgrown trees.
