Took a tour around this area with a long-time local. Fascinating history. Interesting views: second world war bunker, timber yards and of course the town. Three rivers including the shortest river in the world.

It is just outside town and well worth a drive to the top for a good view. The road round to the beach was disappointing, unless you are looking to walk all the way up.

It is only a 5minute drive from the citu centre. The lookout has just about 365degree views. You can see most of the city and the ocean looks beautiful from here.
