This vantage point is not too far from town and worth stopping by. There is plenty of parking and a few different viewing points. It’s really pretty and you can see all of Tamworth and beyond.

This was the first place we went on arriving to Tamworth. What a wonderful view of the area. We enjoyed the birds in the trees and restful, quiet area. Picnics here would be great. We didn't stay long, but were glad for the visit.

Given how flat the whole of Tamworth is this lookout helps you put the whole area in perspective - close to town and heaps of parking

Lovely view from up here. Plenty of grass and shaded areas and bbqs to have a lunch and or bbq. You really gain an appreciation of the size of the town from up here.

The lookout is a great spot to get a clear overview of Tamworth. There are some lovely walks around the lookout and it worth going up to watch the sunset. The colours are spectacular. Plus it’s free.

It’s a lovely and beautiful small park on the high location. It’s easy to find, you can see the entire Tamworth and good for sunset view.

Worth visiting early in the morning, during the day, on sunset, and at night. Each visit reveals Tamworth in different ways. It’s not an experience you will ever tire of. It’s a credit to all those who take care of it.
