The Observation Tower @ Koo Wee Rup
The Koo Wee Rup observation tower is located off the South Gippsland Highway in the Col Utber Swamp Tower Reserve which is just south of Koo Wee Rup and overlooks the wetlands; with views south to French Island as well as Westernport Bay. The park has plenty of off road parking, and is often frequented by roadside traders; during our visit fresh donuts were on offer by a donut van.
In addition to the park that exists, there is also an observation tower which is a high wooden structure with a distance and direction marker that points to a number of different locations (e.g. Tooradin – west 7km, San Remo – South 35km).
Below is a panoramic image, which consists of a number of different images stitched into a near 360 degree panorama using Kolor Giga, and the tour through Kolor Panotour.
