The Forest Sky Pier is a spectacular architectural feature providing the panoramic views over the Coffs Coast and Hinterland. Cantilevered off the edge of Sealy Lookout in Orara East State Forest, the Forest Sky Pier projects 22 metres out over rainforest, 15 metres above the forest canopy. The Forest Sky Pier is a 5-10 minute drive off the Pacific Highway through banana plantations and forest, taking in amazing views as you travel up the hill side. It's a must-see destination for the North Coast.

We drove up to the sky pier in the afternoon to take in the view, but the pier was closed for maintenance. It is quite a windy drive up to the lookout but I'm sure the view would have been amazing. Next time.

Unfortunately no signage on main road to show the lookout was closed and may be closed for a while. Some parking but probably not suitable for caravans. Difficult to turn south when returning to highway.

We went during light rain and it was still good, the next time we went it was clear and you can see for kilometres.
