Never fails to disappoint and worth the 5km drive up (and then down - you need good brakes!) the mountain to see the view across Camden Haven and up the glorious Mid-North Coast. (Make sure you do the 2nd viewing platform at the back of...More

Well worth the drive up for cracking views of Camden Haven Inlet and lakes. On a clear day you can see up and down the coast.

A short drive up the mountain gives you spectacular views north and south from the 3 viewing platforms - 2 on the north & 1 on the south side. It's much cooler up on the mountain too and no sand flies or mosquitoes

Been here a few times and always enjoyed it. Great spot to take the family or friends for a picnic. Great views but avoid going on windy days.
