The Gan Gan Lookout is an excellent destination to take visitors to show them the an overview of Nelson Bay. It is only a short walk from the car park to the look out. Well worth a visit.

Worth driving up the hill to have a good panoramic view of Nelson Bay. Weather was good and we managed to enjoy the views.
