We did the circuit walk, including viewing rock, powder magazine and Devils cave, totalling about 3 km. The walk itself is moderate and good for some exercise, the view over Heathcote is OK. As mentioned by others, signage could be better but follow the markers...More

Really great circuit, but signage is a real issue! From the Powder Magazine to Devil’s Cave wasn’t too bad, signs needed repair but could follow. But finding the viewing rock caused a few problems, lack of signs/hard to decipher which way arrows went. We enjoyed...More

Lovely views over Heathcote. Track up there more suitable for 4wd. Short walk to view from car park. Picnic tables available.

Worth visiting if you are spending any time in Heathcote. Best viewed on a sunny day. Provides good view over Heathcote and surrounding areas.

The walk is worth the effort but hard to know when you have reached the actual "Viewing Rock" as the sign has gone missing. Loads of kangaroos up close and personal....a great activity if you are reasonably fit and love the natural environment.

It is possible to drive up to this lookout in a conventional vehicle. Interesting walk starts from area of Valley of the Liquid Ambers, and passes the historic Heathcote Gun Powder / blasting powder storage building, where powder supplies were kept in gold mining days....More

Was a good walk through some local bushland about an hour round trip and when you get there it seems so much higher than you've walked.. a great overview of the whole township
