Mitchells Ridge Lookout is an historic lookout and rest area, named after Sir Thomas Mitchell who supervised the building of the Pass by convict labour in 1832. An obelisk at the lookout commemorates the opening of Victoria Pass in 1832. The Pass is one of the oldest and most significant engineered works in Australia still in use today. From the western end of the lookout there is a good view of the convict hewn and built sandstone rampart across the Pass.
