On a clear day, Mount Buffalo is easily recognisable on the southern horizon. The rock pools on the top of Mount Pilot are rare. The spring display of the pink Micromyrtus is quite spectacular. Whilst it’s a short walk the reward is a stunning view, a place to sit and reflect, and of course many opportunities for creative photographers.
