Ocean front view between the cliffs & the coastline. Nice history / memorial. Worth a stopover on your way through this region.

Disappointed by the fact that on information to the location of the Hobart, it is just a memorial to a great ship.

This is one of my favorite drives along he south coast. The lookout is a great place to view the hills and the sea and the wonderful views of a beautiful part of the south coast. It is a quiet drive with not much traffic...More

Nothing too exciting, but pretty views and an interesting piece of history. Since, it's right on the main road, worth a quick stop to stretch the legs and enjoy the serenity.

A great lookout, informative plaque that explains the significance of this memorial. You can also take a walk down the unpaved path down to the beach.

We didn't even realize this existed but were intrigued by the information it provided. The fact that the anchor indicated where the ship was resting was of great interest.

It was interesting to see where the HMAS Hobart now lies. It was well sign posted, easy to park & an easy walk to view the plaque.

If you are in the area, you must stop at the HMAS Hobart Lookout, the views are breath taking and the kids love to have a photo next to the anchor. Beautiful place to stop and watch the sunset.
