My girlfriend is a nurse, so she wanted to the hospital while were were in Raro. A quick drive up the hill to check the place out with a hillside view overlooking the airport and out towards Black Rock Beach....worth the quick detour.

Best views without walking, I rode up on a scooter and it was quite steep but very worth it, pretty flowers line the cliff on the way up too so that's a bonus. Feels a bit odd to be outside the hospital but if you...More

There is a dirt track fairly steep to climb on reaching the hospital. Nice ferns growing on either side of path. Track well trodden and worth it for the views

This was a nice little detour and a good way to see some more of the island, however the view wasn't as good as we were expecting, very overgrown. Took us a while to find the viewpoint, ended up following some others through the buildings.

We drove up to the hospital just to have a look - the road is quite narrow in places but the views looking over the bush were lovely.

Was amazed at the size of the hospital, lovely view over the beaches. Easy drive up the hill to lookout.
