History and great views
I'd never visited the Hummock Lookout in my previous visits to the area and the day I chose to go was not the best. Heavy rain pelted down as I reached the top of the Hummock. I am surprised the photos came out so well.

It is a place of interesting history. It is the remains of an extinct volcano. It was seen and recorded by Matthew Flinders as he sailed past in 1799 and there is a memorial to Bert Hinkler. Read the stories here.

On a good day, the views would be better and taking binoculars would also be a good idea.

There is a small shelter but the rain was heavy and almost horizontal while I was there, so my visit was short. The photos give you an idea of the fabulous views from the Hummock and I am sure if I had been there on a "fine day", the views would be better.

Oh, and if you like taking photos - there are great views!

Great views Di, and great photos considering the weather. Bundaberg is on my bucket list to visit to photograph all the memorials to Bert Hinkler.

Thank you for the memories. I recently found a photo taken when I was working up there of my family on the Hummock. We'd go up there to spot the cane fires. Sue
