This is a walk I’ve known about for years, i used to walk it every now and then. It has some spectacular views over the Tyers River Gorge, surrounding mountains and also over some of the Latrobe valley too. This lookout is named after Jim Peterson who was the senior vice president of the Latrobe Valley field naturalists club.
To get here head out to Tyers and then up Tyers-Walhalla Rd, for about 8km's /10mins. You will see a very small sign off to the left (as shown below), you will have to keep an eye out for it as its a little hard to see. After you turn off you then drive on a dirt road. Follow that all the way to end and that's where you will find the start of your walk.
It is a very simple walk, there's not too much to it. You start out from the car park and from there you go downhill and not long after you will reach some stairs, which makes the decent a little easier.
There are 2 different lookout platforms, personally I would save the furthest one for last as I believe you get better views from that platform. The first lookout has views over the surrounding mountains.
The second lookout has views over the mountains also but from this one you can see the river below and if you look to the left you can see over parts of the Latrobe Valley.
The way back up is a little steep but on the positive side it doesn't take very long. This is an awesome little walk and if your looking for a small adventure this is one to do!
