Fantasitic views. 1.8km return to Stamford Hill lookout and Flinders Memorial, moderate well signed walk. Lovely picnic area, near the carpark, at the bottom of the walk, beautiful beach just a few metres from the carpark and toilet facilities as well. For the more adventurous there are 2 other walks that start here as well.
