Good views of Bunbury and surrounds. Well worth the climb. Good to climb on a summers evening and catch the breeze at the top.

This is a must-visit place in Bunbury. It gives you a 360-degree of the city and the coastline, and enables you to see how all the other places you want to visit 'fit together'.
