The walk starts off nice and flat and then starts a climb that is relatively easy for most fitness levels and ages. It is only about 300m to the top. The track is a bit washed out in places and when you get to the...More

I guess when you go to the Clare Valley you should not be expecting a mountainous view from the lookout. With that in mind, the climb is not too taxing and easily accessed. There are some informative boards with information about the local geologyl and...More

It is not the right time to visit Neagles Rock, but we walked up anyway. The countryside is very dry, and it is much prettier in Spring, when the sun orchids are in flower. However, it is worth the walk for the views of the...More

We wanted to visit one of the lookouts in or near Clare before driving home. First we drove to Brookes Lookout but, when we got to the turn off from the road to Blyth, we found it closed with no reason on the notice board....More

A good place to see beautiful views of the valley. The short walk up to the rocks is a bit of a climb but most people could manage it. We looped around and walked through some lovely bush and we're lucky to see kangaroos and...More

We drove to this lookout not knowing what to expect - a short but steep walk up the hill from the car park, with nice views over some vineyards and the Clare Valley. The track is by no means perfect - a bit rugged and...More

This place needs some serious work. Be prepared for steep, unsealed terrain with a slightly perilous peak. There was no signage an eroded bush track, a bull ant attack and a general feeling that it's less a 'lookout' and more a short hike. Even when...More
