Vista Point Picnic Area

Natural Attractions

There’s no need to book ahead for this magnificent lunch spot with superb mountain views. Tucked away in Mount Hyland Nature Reserve, Vista Point picnic area boasts breathtaking scenic views across vast wilderness. Located between Dorrigo and Grafton, this wild and remote spot is a short detour off Chaelundi Road, ideal for those who love bushwalking and birdwatching, and nature-lovers on a 4WD tour.

Stop and inhale the pristine rainforest air and feel the tranquillity descend. As you unwrap your sandwiches, gaze across the million-dollar views of Chaelundi Wilderness to the incredible Gibraltar Range National Park over 70 kilometres away.

The crisp clear days of autumn and winter are perfect for taking in the 180-degree vista. Be sure to keep an eye on the sky as majestic wedge-tailed eagles are often seen surfing the updrafts near this sky-high picnic spot.

**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 – **
