Drove up here late morning and were rewarded with some spectacular views over the town and the valley. It is very dry which was sad (drought all through NSW) can only imagine how lovely it looks after buckets of rain. Easy drive after a morning...More

Well worth the short drive from town. After a drive through the forest from Walcha we came across this lookout. Fabulous view.

Easy to access off the sealed road. Walk down to the lookout but be careful as it is rocky. Good spot to see native birds. 200 metres away is a covered area for a feed. This is also close to where you can find crystals...More
