In Tuncurry for 2 nights and after convincing my husband that we should take our new 4x4 off road again, set off in great anticipation. Travelled along Coomba Road and advised to turn left. We hit dirt immediately, which was fine, however it deteriorated each...More

It is a very pretty drive through the forest and a beautiful view from the top. The gum trees are quite spectacular. When you get to the lookout it is a bit overgrown and no facilities other than a picnic table.

The lookout is spectacular, with great views all around. Bring a picnic and enjoy the views. You may need a 4WD vehicle to get there, though, as the road is frequently damaged after rainfall or strong winds pass through the area.

The drive to this spot was along a narrow dirt road but through lovely Aussie bush. The view is quite breathtaking and worth the trip. Views are both North and South although the view north is the knock out. Suggest you take a thermos and...More
