Excellent views out to the assembly and anchorage for the first convoy to depart in WWI with the AIF and NZEF. Easy to access, just be aware of the sometimes very busy traffic.

Great views and room to park. Managed to see a ship being guided to Port by tugboats. Middleton Beach just a few minutes around the corner. City of Albany a mere 4 mins approx away. Great for photo op

There's room to pull off the road here to really take in this marvelous view and read the information provided. It's so much safer than trying to navigate the winding road and see the view at the same time.

Again a big plus for Rotary for establishing this look-out - A great spot for tourists to see the magnificence of Albany and visualise the First Sailing Ships to enter this bay and the basking Whales

Great for a quick stop to enjoy spectacular views. Walking is possible down well constructed pathways. Easy to get into parking. Try using panoramic on you smart phone, it makes for great photos.
