This lookout has a wonderful view over the ocean and it is a great location to watch the whales pass when they are travelling either north or south.

Gets the blood pumping, and I’d not be a fan of the climb in summer, but it’s a glorious climb and well worth the view in winter. We even saw some whales! Lots of parking and hand rails and seats along the way if you...More

The walk up to the lookout is steep, but well worth the effort. The view up and down the coast and back over the town are beautiful.

A wonderful spot to see the coastline. When in Terrigal, I try to walk the skillion for the view. It also gets your heart pumping!

There are stairs leading to the top. The walk only takes 6-7 minutex. We went on a windy wet morning and were nearly blown off our feet but the views were amazing

The view is well worth the walk! The walkway is a fully sealed path with some stairs - but if you have a pram you can avoid them by walking on the grass in that section. There is a big hill for the little ones...More

great walk from Terrigal centre to the top of the Skillion now they have a pathway and the view looking back is spectacular. If warm a dip in the Haven area is delightful as well.

The Skillion is not particularly high. It only takes about 10 minutes to walk from the car park, if you are of moderate fitness. The views are lovely. It is well worth it.
