Information

A lookout in Queenstown, Tasmania, that is next to the CBD but provides panoramic views over the town, historic mining operations and the rugged grandeur of the surrounding mountain ranges.

It was named after a battle for a hill in South Africa during the Boar War. The lookout at the summit is a memorial to the battle in which local men fought.

Signage at the lookout also tells of a local "battle" for the hill involving a cannon and some superficial injuries.
