If you come to the Camden Haven area and don't go up North Brother Mountain, then you have truly missed out. Spectacular views and puts the ocean, river and lake into perspective. The road up the mountain is a definitely one to be taken with...More

Not to be missed. Overlooks the whole region and is easy to drive up to. Great picnic spot overlooking the area.

Never fails to disappoint and worth the 5km drive up (and then down - you need good brakes!) the mountain to see the view across Camden Haven and up the glorious Mid-North Coast. (Make sure you do the 2nd viewing platform at the back of...More

We were recommended by a local friend to make the detour up the mountain, and we couldn't have had better advice. At least four lookouts, all readily accessed, give vast views up and down the coast. Short walks give access to lovely forest, including some...More
