Trip with Underwood Scouts. A clear day gave a fantastic view. Always amazing.

Easy short walk to a lookout where on a nice day you can see Mt Warning, Tweed Heads, and surrounding countryside.

An easy 350 metre, approximately 15 minute walk from the car park. You are rewarded with a lovely walk through a moss-rich rainforest before stunning 180 degree views over northern New South Wales.

when we saw the signboard to " best of all lookout", we felt that we have to see it for ourselves. True enough - did not disappoint. Beautiful view - had a glimpse of the amazing view before it was covered up by the fogs... nice, cool, easy, walk to the lookout - worth a visit.
Parking area was quite full. We were quite lucky to find a park.

The view was not the “best of all” today but the atmosphere was eerie.

Short walk but great birdlife and it was good to see the Antarctic Beach Trees. Would do it again for the birdlife.

A must do when in the area. Amazing views - even when hazy. Terrific birdlife and a bitumen path the whole way.

My first venture out after breaking my leg and tearing my ACL in May 2019

Spectacular views.

Easy little walk, worth it for the view, although it was very crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Enjoyed the view. Great for those with little kids, or less fit and mobile people.

Lovely, easy stroll on a paved pathway.

Going in the rain meant no view just cloud :P

This was our last out of four walks on the day, we were a little over it once getting down to small lookout that was very busy. Would be a lovely view if clear, smog or smoke was smearing the view. If it was the only lookout you could get to it is worth it.

Very hazy day unfortunately so the view was limited.

Richard Mason on 2 Dec, 2018

The Antarctic trees were amazing and really beautiful. The forest was really pretty on this very easy little walk :)

AmyKT on 5 Aug, 2018

A lovely short stroll. Misty and spooky through the trees. Considering it was so warm on the Coast it was a bit chilly up there.
I'm sure it is a beautiful view ...if you weren't in a cloud. Oh well next time.

This is a great drive and walk to take Brisbane visitors to for a day out.
