Power's Lookout overlooks the King Valley below and the Alpine National Park in the distance. Henry Power had his camp near here. He was a bushranger in the 1860's and chose this location for his hide out because the views supposedly allowed him to see people approaching it. But in 1870 the police came up here undetected and captured him.
