Auburn River National Park, Gorge Lookout walk

Wide bay Burnett
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

This short stroll leads to impressive views across Auburn River gorge. Take a camera and capture views of the river and its distinctive boulders. The 'Giant's Chair' can be seen from the lookout; so too is a peregrine falcon's nest—easily detected because of the 'white-wash' marks on the cliff face below a collection of sticks and debris which make up the nest. Unfenced lookout: Stay well back from the edge and supervise children at all times.
