The Specimen Hill Lookout walk takes you along a gravel bush track that leads you out along a shoulder of Specimen Hill. The track ends at a tunnel driven into the Hillside with other mines visible below. Some good views of Herberton can be had through the trees but undoubtedly the best ones can be obtained from the top of the Specimen Hill. Be aware that although it is an easy walk, the track can be steep in some parts. Allow around 1.5 hours for the 1.5 kilometres track.
