This spectacular lookout is situated on the eastern side of Mount Alexander, and offers unrivalled views across the sweeping fields of Sutton Grange. 

The lookout consists of a huge platform of granite, with massive boulders stacked impressively across the mountainside all around. 

This is just a small section of the gorgeous rocky outcrop which stretches across Mount Alexander!

Lang's Lookout is accessed via a very short walking track from the parking area, which sits alongside the prominent communication towers. 

It only takes a few moments to reach the lookout, which is down the slope to the right of the track. 

This lookout is also the beginning of the West Ridge Walking Track, which connects Lang's Lookout with Shepherd's Flat Lookout, Dog Rocks, and Leanganook Campground
