360 views but quite underwhelmed with the views. Pretty average. Lots of small insects and mozzies even in autumn. Dont bother if you dont have much time. Walk up ok on granite steps but still puffing slightly on warm day.

Nice park, make sure to head to Woolshed Falls and Mt Pilot. Lots of history around the Magenta Mine area. White box walk is worth the time as well

Lovely spot for a picnic and a bush walk, bit of a climb up the rocks to the top but well worth it for the view and the peace and quiet. Lots of wildlife about.

It is quite a pleasant drive through the Forest to reach the Caves. They are great to explore but you must be careful.
