  • Roadside lookout
  • Views over Harcourt and Mount Alexander
  • Giant hollow tree stump
  • Stone ruins
This spot along Specimen Gully Road offers beautiful views over Harcourt and the Mount Alexander Regional Park. 

A huge Aboriginal birthing tree stands by the road, and stone ruins can be seen over the fence a short way down the hillside. 

During spring, the blossoms here are in bloom and the grassy fields in the valley below are lush and green. 

This is a very pretty spot to stop for a look as you explore the historical treasures of Specimen Gully and the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. 

This lookout is located on a bend with limited visibility for oncoming traffic, so be sure to park well off the road and supervise children. 

Do not cross any fences, you can view the stone ruins below from the roadside.
