Moorabbee Bluff offers spectacular panoramic views over a vast section of Lake Eppalock and the farmland beyond. Several picnic tables are scattered across the grassy bluff. A gravel road leads from the Moorabbee Foreshore Road down to a large parking area and viewpoint. A short walking track leads from this parking area down to a second viewpoint closer to the water.

Stone ruins stand beside the road along with a monument which displays the following text:

This plaque overlooks Langwoornar Station.

It is dedicated to the late Robinson & Mary Ann Cocks who settled on the Station in 1852.

It was bounded by the Wild Duck Creek, Campaspe River & extended south to Mia Mia township. The family sold Langwoornar Station in 1888 & Robinson became the Heathcote Magistrate.

Robinson Cocks Junior purchased the neighbouring property Kimbolton in 1889. It sold in 1898 and he then purchased Northwood Park, Seymour Vic.

David & Hunter Cocks, Canberra.

A little further down the road from Moorabbee Bluff lies the Lone Grave of Katherine Patterson and Mary Lumsden Patterson.
