Wrights Lookout Walk

New England National Park

Wrights lookout walking track takes you through a lush world of ferns and wildflowers to a rocky plateau with spectacular panoramic views looking down to Bellinger River.
The walk to Wrights Lookout takes you from the lush world of ferns and mosses to a rocky plateau with spectacular panoramic views.
It’s a bit of a scramble to get to the top (short section of steep slippery rock but not much of a scramble), but you’ll be rewarded at the end, standing on the top of an ancient trachyte remnant of Ebor Volcano, looking down to Bellinger River in the valley below.

Pack a thermos and enjoy a hot cuppa and a picnic with a view. The views from the top are beautiful all year round, but in spring the heathlands burst with colourful wildflowers. For the birdwatchers, keep your eyes out for honeyeaters as they come to feed on the flowering banksia.

Route/Trail notes:

Follow Robinsons Knob trail a muddy 4wd track down to the junction with Wrights Lookout Walking Track proper. The scramble descibed by national parks now occurs which is in realty just a steep section of natural and non-natural wet rock steps which could be descibed as a scramble as the rocks are quite slippery. Once on top of the plateau enjoy the walk along the top two the two lookout points and return the way you came.
