We just paid a short visit and enjoyed the stunning view of Discovery Bay. Didn't go too far due to lack of time. When walking to the observatory site, there was an area with lots of flies.

Easy access to the lookout, parking close by and a view to die for. Well worth the drive via unsealed Edrom Road through the Ben Boyd National Park on the way to Green Cape Light south of Eden.

Fantastic, easy stop with large bus.. easy accessibility for disabled.. view down coast just beautiful. Even though corrugated dirt road, still easy for bus and worth the trip in

One of the natural and beautiful elements of the area. Worth a quick stop off in Eden! There are a couple of good views of the bay. Need to read the history to fully appreciate.

We stopped here to pay our park fees on way to Green Cape lighthouse. Well worth a look though as the view is fabulous. There must be some great walks to do through this area if you have time

We stopped here to pay for the National Parks Entry, and to see the view from the lookout, which was a very short walk away. Just lovely! You can see for miles, and wonder why it was named Disaster Bay, as it all looked so...More
