48 Excelsior Road, Oban

Although a steep walk, the 30 minute track to Observation Rock is rewarded with fantastic panoramic views over Paterson Inlet and, on clear days, views of Mount Rakeahua. Observation Rock is also a superb place to watch sunsets and sunrises. Don't forget to bring your camera! 

A Department of Conservation signpost marks the start of the path off of Excelsior Street.
