Winter views beckon as Jacksons Lookout reopens
Monday 26 June, 2017
Access to one of the best panoramic views in Hepburn Regional Park has been restored with the reopening of Jacksons Lookout.
The popular spot on the Goldfields Track is again welcoming visitors following maintenance works during May–June 2017. These included the installation of new panels, handrails, boards and steps to the lookout tower, and an upgrade of the carpark.
Jacksons Lookout is in the northern section of the Hepburn Regional Park, close to the Hepburn Mineral Springs Reserve. It’s also accessible from the lookout carpark, a short drive from Daylesford on the Back-Hepburn Road.
Quotes attributable to Parks Victoria Ranger, Samantha Hall:
“We’re delighted to reopen Jacksons Lookout, which has long provided spectacular views for bush walkers and visitors dropping in by car from Daylesford and the Hepburn Springs area.”
“The tower provides a panoramic view of the northern end of the Hepburn Regional Park, which looks especially beautiful in the crisp cooler months.”
“Designed and installed by local engineer J.H Jackson in the 1940s, the unique and charming lookout tower has long been popular with locals and visitors.”
“Winter is a great time to see our wonderful parks looking green and lush, with the added health benefits that we know can come from spending time in nature.”
“We thank our regular visitors for their patience while the tower works were being completed, and look forward to seeing more activity in the park through the year.”
