Powers Lookout

Powers Lookout Road, Whitlands 3678

The rocky escarpment high above the King Valley was the hideout of Harry Power, a notorious but ‘gentlemanly’ bushranger in the 1860s. 

From the Mansfield-Whitfield Road, a three-kilometre trip along a gravel road brings you to a parking area with picnic tables and toilets. 

Discover two lookout points providing sweeping views of the surrounding mountain and valley landscape. 

The first lookout has wheelchair access. 

For the second lookout, a short walk (0.4 kilometres) with a series of ladders takes you to a viewing platform at the northernmost point of the rocky outcrop. 

It is easy to imagine why Power chose this site for a hideout. 

There is also a 20-minute return walk through the bush to a waterhole amongst beautiful rocky ledges. Follow the path near the toilets in a westerly direction.
