Bald Hill Lookout - Bunyip State Park

The Bald Hill Lookout is in the Weatherhead Range, in the south-western section of the Bunyip State Park, about 60 km east of Melbourne.

It is off Lupton's Track, a gated management track which starts at the Tynong North Rd, some 9 km north of the Princes Highway.

Walkers, horseriders and cyclists are permitted to use this Track, which ultimately joins the Weatherhead Hill Track, several km further to the east.

The Lookout is at 254 m - the start of the track is at 194 m.

The views from the Lookout are outstanding, which I consider to be the best in this section of the Park.

There are magnificent panoramas north across the Diamond Creek valley to the spectacular and rugged Black Snake and Blue Ranges.

The lower section of the Track ascends through grassland and low scrub, then to forest and bushland. Past the Lookout, it continues along a ridge line, at about 291 m.

There are no signs indicating the existence of this marvellous lookout - a wooden seat is provided for a rest!

I visited this Lookout on January 24, 2009, a walk which was about 4 km return.
