Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fantastic view of the lower Clarence with the sea on the horizon.
Beautiful any time of day to visit.
A great spot for a picnic or to rest with beautiful Maclean just down the hill to visit.

Spectacular view of the Clarence River and the surrounding district. Really shows off the difference between the old MacLean Bridge and the new overpass, which is in itself an amazing feature.Easy drive up access and a must do if you are in the area.

The lookout is just a short drive out of the town of Maclean. I suppose if you're really fit you could walk but it's a mighty steep climb and I was happy to be in my car. Fantastic views all round and so high up you really get a feel for the magnificence of nature and how this earth was formed. Also worth seeing is The Pinnacle. A very unusual rock formation and it is recognised as an important Aboriginal cultural site. Read the indigenous story of the Great Serpent and how he made his way up the river past Grafton and beyond. We ignored the nod to Scottish history in Maclean and just really enjoyed visiting this particular location.

Only a few minutes up hill from the town centre is the Lookout providing great views to the north, east and south over the coastline and hinterland including the great rivers and lakes of the area.

The park has a basic amenities and limited car parking.

Along the way stop off at the Pinnacles, a very interesting rock formation.

Only a very short drive up the hill to the lookout. Terrific views across to Yamba and the surrounding area. Worth 15 minutes or more. Some picnic facilities at the top and the pinnacle rocks close by. Very pleasant.
