Snapper Point lookout

Natural Attractions

Snapper Point lookout shines in winter, when whales migrate past the Murramarang coastline and the crisp clear air offers unrivalled photography opportunities. But whales are only the first of several drawcards here: dolphins frequent the area, too, and eagles, falcons, shearwaters, gannets and albatross make this a birdwatching hotspot.

Snapper Point is also a terrific place to take in the lay of the land. The rugged coast stretches seemingly endlessly, with Mount Durras visible in the distance. Even further, Gulaga mountain rises as a dramatic landmark – the local Aboriginal people attach considerable significance to it as a women’s mountain that demands both fear and respect. It is an origin place and a place of healing.

Snapper Point can be reached via a relatively easy 400m track. After visiting the scenic lookout, kick back at nearby Pretty Beach picnic area and take advantage of the facilities on offer.

**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 – **
