Mermaid lookout track is a 1.4km, grade 2 return hike, located in the Crowdy Bay National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.
Cross the footbridge over the creek at Diamond Head and wander up this short walking track to the lookout. Along the shore is a series of rocky coves just perfect for a mermaid’s afternoon nap.
Enjoy spectacular views across the crescent of Dunbogan beach to North Brother mountain and look out for Christmas bells blooming among the grasslands in summer. It’s also a great spot for watching whales on their annual migration along the coast.
