It's only a small car park on the left just before the turnoff to Pearl Beach. A short walk through the bush reveals stunning coastal scenery from numerous vantage points along the way.

The little walk and view from this lookout is very beautiful! You can see out over the entire peninsula, and up into Brisbane Waters National Park. Only thing that the couple needs to improve is the placement of bins.

Beautiful, peaceful walk out to the two viewing platforms. Well worth the short easy walk but a shame the council don't make the path wheelchair friendly. Love the gnarled angophora trunks and wildflowers along the way. Views to Ettalong & beyond in the north &...More

Great views with easy access, overlooking Pearl Beach and Umina Beach at the end of the walk, easy and flat, beautiful forest. Worth spending 30min doing this.

This is a great short walk from the water tower to the main lookout, but there are a couple of smaller places to venture to look over pearl beach as well. The site is also an attraction for Geocachers and Ingressors, if you know what...More

Mount Ettalong Lookout has amazing tranquil views of the water and surrounding landscape. It is a great place to get away from the urban jungle and take in a piece of nature’s beauty.

Nice place to visit and watch the ferries crossing the bay and is easily assessable by car and can walk a short track to get there.
