Hancocks Lookout

Rest Area Overnight - South Australia

Favourite

This free overnight rest area's view over the Flinders Ranges and Spencer Gulf are fantastic.  It is open, grassy and has shade available.  You will be travelling a dirt road to access this but it is well maintained.   It has a maximum stay limit of 20 hours

Turn off Horrocks Pass Road at GPS -32.65792692, 138.06794547 onto an unsealed track to the lookout for approx 7kms.

Well worth the 7 kms of dirt road in. Beautiful views and peaceful. We were the only ones there.

Hancock’s Lookout - sign at turnoff: Smaller notice (30 Dec 2017) says: “Camping permitted one night only. No fires during fire danger season or total fire ban days. Local Government Land by-law No. 4. Expiation Fee $187.50” No facilities; posted photos from other members show what a lovely spot it is. Apparently the one-night camping was recently (re-)introduced for a trial period.

Great views, can be windy. The sign at turn off now states "no fires" at any times
