Great spot on top of the hill looking out over the ocean. Beautiful scenery you can nearly always spot whales. Also common to see dolphins & the occasional seal or green turtle. Love locks are often placed along the fence.

You can drive up to initial lookout & then a short walk to two other vantage points. A must see, no whales today but lots of dolphins putting on a show.

One of my favourite places to walk to in Forster. The view is spectacular and I've visited on a cold windy day and on other days when the sun was brilliant. A wonderful place to contemplate both at sunrise and sunset. I would suggest walking...More
