Amazing views straight from the car park, however when we were there an awful smell was present. Well worth the visit, grab a panoramic photo if you can.

Definitely another great stop which is less touristy. It was our second last stop before we continue to Warrnambool to rest for the night :) Worth stopping by to enjoy the stunning view.
