Beacon Hill Lookout


Details
Originally an old navigational point, Beacon Hill Lookout Tower overlooks Robe. The tower offers stunning views across the town to the ocean and bay and was built as part of Robe 150 Jubilee year celebrations. The tower was built by local contractor Marc Dawson and constructed with a central core of Mount Gambier stone ashlars and a freestone face. A poured in-situ reinforced concrete staircase leads to the top viewing platform. Local, paddock-picked, limestone collected from nearby properties was used for the freestone face. Access to the base of the tower is by a timber boardwalk, approximately 28 metres long and with an overall rise of over three metres, was constructed by the Robe and District Lions Club, 13 members contributed in excess of 130 hours of voluntary labour.
