  • We took a 5 minutes detour from the main road to this lookout before entering Te Anau. With good 360' view overseeing the Te Anau Lake giving us a pre-emble before arriving the town. Recommended.  more »
  • A clear day you have very good views of Te Anau, Lake Te Anau, and the Alps. The lookout is 5 minutes down Ramparts Road, which is another 5 minutes from Te Anau. The view gives more than 180...  more »
  • Absolutely stunning scenery on a clear day. Great for watching the sunset, or evening lights in Te Anau below. It takes about 3 minutes to drive up from the turn off on Te Anau side. The road surface is semi-sealed up to the Look Out. Driving from the Manapouri end of Ramparts Road is not recommended, as you will be driving for a loong time on an unsealed road which will take extra time.
  • A short drive out of town, great visibility far and wide looking over lake te anau and an ideal location for a milky way photo if you get the right visibility.
