  • You come here to appreciate the ecological impact and importance a place like this has on the environment. Urban sprawl on one side- Point Cook Marine Sanctuary and Port Philip Bay on the other. All flat ground 1500m walk to the lookout. No toilets or rubbish bins. Take your rubbish with you!
  • Lovely place to walk and see a wetland and salt marsh with its wildlife. A 1.5 km walk on a wheelchair accessible gravel track from the Car park takes you to the Observation Tower from which there are panoramic views over the salt flats, the wetlands and the surroundings. Over the bay there is an excellent view of central Melbourne with its sky scrapers. Well worth a visit
