Prospect Hill…

by on Mar.07, 2015, under Life, Photography

On the thin strip of land which joins the Dudley Peninsula (where Penneshaw is) to the main part of Kangaroo Island there lies this great lookout at the top of Prospect Hill with fantastic 360˚ views. Sometimes called Mount Thisby it was officially designated Prospect Hill in 2002 to honour Matthew Flinders’ original naming.

Just before reaching Prospect Hill there’s a turnoff down a dirt road to Pennington Bay. This little spot looks like it would be pretty good for a sunrise shoot (maybe even sunset). Unfortunately didn’t get the chance to try it out but we all liked exploring the beach – actually looks like it would have been a great spot for some reasonably protected swimming too.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

There’s a small carpark just off the main road into this area (Hog Bay Road) and then there are around 500 steps up to the top of the small hill and the waiting lookout.

This is the view looking towards Penneshaw way.
