Tower Lookout (Warby-Ovens National Park)

Tower Lookout is a great spot to stop for a picnic and enjoy a glimpse back in time. A picnic table and fireplaces with grills are provided.

Follow the short track up the hill from the car park to admire panoramic views to the north and west from the foundations of the historic fire tower. Take the track past the picnic area to see the impressive stone cairn constructed as a survey marker in 1941.

Fires are permitted in the fireplaces provided, if: it is not a day of Total Fire Ban, a 3-metre area around it is cleared of anything flammable, an adult is in attendance at all times and at least 10 litres of water are available for immediate use. Put the fire out with water, not soil. When the campfire is cool to touch, it is safe to leave.

Woody debris on the ground provides important habitat for small animals. Help us protect the park’s wildlife by bringing firewood with you. Please take your rubbish home for recycling or disposal.
