Here are some comments courtesy of a post on Facebook by the Bridgetown Historical Society. Collated and supplied by MLC in late 2019. A copy of the article can be found here

MLC also commented: One special thing I'd highlight was that in WA, it's probably the only lookout that more "civilians" would have climbed when it was on active service than Forestry people - just because of its location. It's unique in being so close to a regular township and not, at least as far as I can gather, located adjacent to Forestry premises or be otherwise "out of bounds" to everyday citizens just perambulating around.
