The Rock lookout

Natural Attractions

The Rock lookout offers spectacular views, comprises the remains of an old trig point and is a rewarding way to end your hike along Yerong walking track. On a clear day you can see to Galore Hills in the west, and the snow-capped peak of Mount Kosciuszko far in the distance, as well as the Bogong Range and Victorian Alps.

The Rock lookout is a great place for birdwatching, as native peregrine falcons nest at and around The Towers. Artistically inclined travellers might like to bring a sketchbook, or perhaps a camera to capture scenery.

Keep your eyes peeled for wildflowers like bluebells and yellow wattle bloom. Near the bare cliff tops, Dwyer’s mallee gum and drooping sheoak have taken root. After admiring the view, head for The Rock picnic area down below and enjoy a leisurely, well earned lunch.

**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 – www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au **
