Careys Peak lookout

Natural Attractions

You’ll feel on top of the world gazing across the rugged gorges and dramatic mountain ranges of Barrington Tops National Park from Careys Peak lookout. At 1,544m, this walk-in lookout is one of the highest points in the park and a popular destination for bushwalkers, via Careys Peak walking track.

From the summit, you’ll be standing on the edge of the plateau, surrounded by World Heritage-listed wilderness. Notice how the steep ridges run south like the fingers of an outstretched hand. On a clear day, you can see from the Blue Mountains across to the Stockton sand dunes near Newcastle.

Enjoy a well-earned picnic stop, with a spectacular backdrop, before heading back by walking track to Mount Barrington picnic area.

**To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11am and 2pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park – www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au **
