Red Rock Lookout is a bit off the beaten track. We were doing the Great Ocean Road and instead of going from Geelong to Lorne we went via Colac, didn't realise it would take so long. If you're into this sort of thing would be worth the detour but it is quite out of the way. The road's great though... More

If you're driving to or from Melbourne from Timboon or any of the western towns, this is a good spot to stretch your legs, take in the view and use the public convenience. Watch out for the rare skinks. Don't run over them!

Always a great place to visit for the views of the salt and fresh water lakes and volcanic remains in the area. Can be very windy!

The place is easy to access, good condition driveway. We arrived there around 6:30pm and no one was there so we enjoyed a good quality time. This place is so beautiful, breathtaking view, especially the rainbow raised in between the valley and the sunset on the lake.
