Offering spectacular views of The Prom on a clear day.

Approximately midway between the townships of Fish Creek and Foster (off the appropriately named, Fish Creek – Foster Road) is Mount Nicoll Lookout.

Featuring picturesque views of Wilsons Promontory and Corner Inlet the lookout is accessed via a 200 metre gravel trail, up a reasonably steep incline.

The views are quite spectacular and on a clear day visibility can stretch for miles. The towering wind turbines on the Toora hills can be easily viewed, as too the coastal inlets.

The road to the walking track is quite steep, unmade and not suitable for caravans. The walking track is defined but can be a little slippery in places so caution (and appropriate footwear) is advised.

Mount Nicoll is approximately 8km south-west of Foster township.
