The lookout was very easy to get to. The views were quite expectacular. It was a great way to see the whole islands
Definitely recommend 👌

There's a signposted turning on the left on the way into town that takes you to the top. There are great views, but the main benefit is to help visualise the area on the way into town. There are so many islands, bays, spits it's hard to know what's what. Good signboarding as well.

Perfect for views, sunset and sunrise chasers. The 360 views of the the bays is breathtaking. The lilies add to the beauty of this natural place.

We love going up to Gan Gan Lookout to take in the lovely views over the district. You really have views in all directions from the vast sand dunes to the South, the entrance to the vast waterway as well as to the west.
Great place to watch the sunset but one of my favourite things to look at and photograph at the lookout are the wonderful Gymea Lillies which were in full bloom.
The walk up to the top is easy and there is plenty of parking if people do the right thing.

First stop after landing in Newcastle & driving out of the city. Easy drive, well signed then easy stroll to the top for spectacular views across the Port Stephens Bay Area.

Stunning views over Nelson Bay. A friendly local kookaburra was happy to stay long enough for photos. Park nearby and a short uphill walk for the last bit.

Don’t miss Gan Gan if you are in Port Stephens. Amazing views from the top.

Could be a little short on parking on a busy day, but we were there early to see the sunrise.

We went with family and friends here as a part of our Port Stephens tour. You'll have to drive up to the top and at the end of the road, there's a few parking slots (parking was a bit tight though). You might have to wait for a slot if the place is packed but when we went there we're lucky to have it among ourselves. From the parking lot, it was a short and easy stroll - we even have a 2 year old walk with us to the lookout. The view was totally amazing, I'll definitely recommend this stop when you're around the area.

Atop Gan Gan Hill at 160 metres you get excellent views of Nelson Head and Nelson Bay and down south towards Newcastle. Take Lily Hill Road to the top where there is adequate but limited parking . Also enjoy the Telstra Towers and the many Gymea Lily plants.

A must for travellers to Nelson Bay. Suggest choosing a clear day and you will not regret it. You can drive up to the top.
