You'd be mad to miss the short drive up Mount Brown to the lookout area at the top... You can see for miles... We were up there late in the day, next time we will definitely take a picnic and enjoy the view for longer......More

Mount Brown is on the edge of town with easy access The view from the top of the mount is certainly worth the drive up There is a well constructed viewing station which is easy to get to.

A lovely walk up from the cemetery, not too challenging, good views and interesting signage about the area.

5 minute drive from York town. This is a good lookout. Good parking, not too far to walk up to the platform. Gives you a good view out over town and surrounding country side. Has a picnic area and bbqs.

If you want a workout walk it! Mount Brown is on the edge of town along a windy road. Plenty of parking. Lots of information on what you can see and the history of the area.

great 360 degree view, winding drive up the hill and short walk to the lookout. Has a disc showing distances to other towns and geography. Take your camera

It is an ideal place to drop by for a rest or picnic lunch. From there, you can see miles away in tranquility.

Any trip to York on needs to cross the river and head up to here to get a view of the town and surrounding farm lands. The patterns and colors of the differing field of crops add value to the vista.
