Even though it was blowing a gale, we stood at the top of the bluff and watched pine logs being loaded onto a ship for hours. I cannot ever remember seeing a working harbour so easy to watch. From the trucks bring the logs in, then being temporarily stored, then onto the harbour trucks to be carried to a handling yard, onto the crane and finally onto the ship. Very fascinating. Meanwhile all the other port activities were in full swing. A very memorable visit.

We were committed to the drive when we realised how dangerous it was. The view was great but not worth the difficult access way. We were horrified to see a very large campervan heading up the hill maybe a warning to let unwitting travellers know what is in store for them. Maybe a sensor light would be sensible. There are many places two way traffic is impossible and backing up is life threatening

The walk uphill is steep but passes through some lovely greenery. THe view is not perhaps worth it- logs ready for shipping... Also the walk is not well signposted- in several places it is easy to get lost.

This lookout gives a fine view over the waterfront and the harbour. It's worth driving up the steep hill to have a look.
