I am only rating it poor because it is currently closed for safety reasons. This is understandable but of course disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing the views from the top. Luckily the island is full of good views!

A steep walk that's not for the feint hearted or infirm! Well worth the effort as the views are spectacular! Go on a cool day or in the morning!

This is quite a stair climb which I did slowly (in my 60s) but well worth the effort even after a full day of touring! You can see both sides of the island from this lookout and it is a spectacular view!

Make sure you drive here and stop to enjoy the great views of the coast along Pennington Bay and towards the south ocean.

there are about 500 steps to the top. Shallow steps and lots of landings, some with little seats. My 70+ Mum was taking 2 steps at a time they are that shallow. The view is worth the climb. The island is only 900 meters wide...More
