“Excellent view for whale watching”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

After a really interesting walk the final view is worth it. Great place to see whales from.
Can get the bus back if tired from outside the superb café. Great cakes!

“Good walk and some great views.”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

The Gunners walk is a raised metal walkway, very easy going, the steps are well spaced out and there are no really steep grades. There are some great stops along the way with fantastic views. Lots of bird life as well.

“The View...”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Great view of the CBD from the Fairfax Lookout. Well worth the short drive. Neat to see where the School of Artillery used to be as well from someone who now gets to experience it at Puckapunyal!
