An interesting drive to the large car park area, then a pleasant 350m walk to the memorial. Great views and take time to listen to the abundant Birdlife.

I knew of this place after the Ash Wednesday fires, and as we were visiting Hanging Rock, this was a must see on our day trip! The sight of the cross is beautiful, and the view is impressive.
