Sir Charles Kingsford Smith Memorial and Lookout, Gerroa

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Sir Charles Kingsford Smith Memorial Lookout offers panoramic views of Seven Mile Beach and the National Park, as well as magnificent views of the southern coastline.

The Memorial is in the shape of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith’s famous aircraft called the ‘Southern Cross’, with a plaque on display near the outline of the aircraft. It commemorates his historic and record breaking flight on January 11, 1933 across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand.

Seven Mile Beach was selected for the take-off area as it allowed a long, smooth take-off for his heavy laden aircraft.
