I've done this walk several times with different friends (of different fitness levels). The best view is from the Thumbs Lookout in the carpark, although there are many spots for good views, a pause (and to catch breath) along the track. Track easy to follow...More

A beautiful drive, as we came from sorell, magnificent tall blue gums on the drive. The lookout was incredible, magnificent all round veiw of the local islands surrounded by our beautiful blue ocean. Worth the stop.

We saw a sign on the side of the road indicating a lookout. Rough dirt terrain to get to the top and you have to be careful and avoid large rocks to avoid any damage to the undercarriage of your car, but the views once...More

After traversing a rough road we were rewarded. This lookout is well worth visiting. We were lucky enough to be there when a Park Ranger was and she gave us so much more information on the whole area.

Went here alone to pass some time, and boy did I enjoy myself! The views are just amazing. I wanted to do the hike as well, but couldn't find it unfortunately.

Driving a small car at 10-15km an hour as there were so many rocks on the road. Not a great deal of signage either. The view was great however after getting super anxious driving there I'm not sure it was worth the stress.

If in Orford and looking for ways to spend an hour this was a pleasant drive with the kids. The view at the top is fantastic obviously if you go on a relatively clear day. Nice spot for a picnic.
