Mt Ettalong Lookout is a 1.4km, grade 2 Return hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This lovely short walk takes you from the large water tank along an old trail and track to two fantastic fenced lookout platforms. There are a few unfenced views along this shaded walk. A picnic table among the Sydney Red Gums just before the two main lookouts makes a wonderful spot for a snack. The lookouts provide great views over Umina Beach Brisbane Water Bouddi National Park Pearl Beach and out to the ocean. A great spot on a sunny day or for a sunset.
