Cape Hawke lookout

Natural Attractions

Positioned right at the northern end of the national park, this superb lookout is worth every step of the 500m hike through regenerating littoral rainforest. Pull on your walking shoes and bring some binoculars and a camera after approximately 420 steps you’ll reach an 8.4m tower with stunning views of the surrounding area.

There’s Booti Booti to the south, and Wallingat National Park beyond and slightly to the west. On a clear day you can even see as far as Barrington Tops and Crowdy Bay National Park.

Birdwatching is wonderful year-round here, with pelicans and terns in great abundance, but winter holds an extra special surprise whales break the surface of the sea, blowing water, and there’s no better place to watch them in their annual migration.
