This is a great short walk to a lookout with a fantastic views. The lookout has great views out through the heads and also much of the upper reaches of Sydney Harbour. From the lookout you can even see down into Crater Cove to the old houses built during the great depression. The walk is very short and starts on Dobroyd Scenic Drive. Whilst in the area it is worth looking at Arabanoo Lookout at the north-eastern corner of Tania Park.
