Crackneck Point lookout

Natural Attractions

Uncover the secret of local whale watchers and surfers at Crackneck Point lookout. Make a beeline for this atmospheric lookout between May and August and you may just be rewarded with views of whales swimming past on their northern migration, and surfers can check out wave conditions.

Crackneck Point lookout is a fantastic place for a photo stop or picnic at any time of year. Spread out a rug on the grass or set up at one of the picnic tables. You’ll be surrounded by panoramic views of Shelly Beach, which continue along the Central Coast past Norah Head, Tuggerah Lake and The Entrance. It’s a popular spot for hang gliding, so look up to the sky to see them drifting through the air.

If you’re feeling energetic after a picnic lunch, why not take a short walk along The Coast walking track? The track stretches…
