Great views and definitely worth driving up to have a look.. The road was a bit narrow and bendy which everyone needs to be careful and also watch for people walking up the road.. Small car park so again be careful..

It’s a freaky place and pretty dangerous to drive up and it gives you that rapey kind of vibe yeah I just don’t feel it.

Great views from this lookout of the ocean. Only a short walk from your car to access the views of Nelson Bay.

Views 50 km north east to Seal Rocks. Overlook Yacaaba and Tomaree and Fingal Beach to the east. See Boat Harbour and Stockton Beach to the south. Combined with more Gymea Lillies I have ever seen in the one place! What a magic place.
