Nestled in the mountains, on the road to Cradle Mountain, this is a great place to stop for a meal or a drink and enjoy the beautiful mountain forests and wildlife. If there is snow about you can play in it here and go inside to warm up by the fire before returning home. If you don't have a 4wd it is not safe to travel any further in snowy conditions.

The walk to the top of the mountain takes about 40-45 mins, and you are presented with stunning views to the west, south and east. To the south lies Mt Duncan, and to the east, Ulverstone and Devonport, with views to the ocean. I highly recommend this walk if you’re in the area and looking for a short walk with views.
