It is really worth the hike up to the clock to get an awesome view out over Alexandra towards Clyde. It is a short hike up.

Clock is really impressive. Kids loved the walk through suspension bridge. The climb to the clock itself is pretty steep.

Great icon, largest clock in Southern hemisphere. An easy walk and great views. Can also be driven to a carpark just above it. Further up the road is another carpal that leads to a plane table naming mountain ranges in area
