New lookouts to love

Chasing that big view? We’re finding new ways to enjoy our favourite destinations starting with these brand new lookouts below.

Let’s check them out!



Freycinet National Park’s favourite postcard snapshot now faces stiff competition following the construction of a raised lookout track overlooking Wineglass Bay.

Guests can now enjoy the bay’s iconic brilliant white sandy beaches and shimmering waters from multiple vantage points along a glorious hill-side trail.

The viewing circuit commences at the site of the original viewing platform, located on the Wineglass Bay return walk.

The grade-3 walk up to the lookout is steep at times, in fact, some of the lookout’s materials were helicoptered in.

It’s the first of many significant improvements spelled out in the Freycinet National Park Management Plan finalised last year, with a second carpark planned.


Caravanners can park just a short distance to a remarkable new platform suspended over a gorge within glorious Oxley Wild Rivers National Park.

The new lookout opening mid last-year overlooks Chandler Falls as well as Wollomombi Falls, the State’s highest with a 200m+ cascades.

You can reach the lookout from the Wollomombi Falls picnic area with access for prams and wheelchairs plus room to park the caravan.
