Crackneck Point Lookout

National Parks and Reserves

Uncover the secret of local whale watchers and surfers at Crackneck 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 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.
