Point lookout walking track is a 0.5km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in the New England National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.

Summary

Everyone who visits New England National Park should ensure they take a stroll around Point lookout walking track, located 1500m above sea level at the edge of the Great Escarpment. On a clear day, a 180-degree panorama takes in this World Heritage Area right out to Pacific Ocean, 70 kilometres away.
The bushland surrounding the 500m track is dominated by spectacular snow gums, but in summer cast your eyes down into the rainforest valleys to spot the bright red flowers of the flame trees.
As you’re enjoying the view at the lookouts along the way, watch for spine-tailed swifts soaring on the air currents and hunting for flying insects. Grey goshawk can also be seen hovering and seeking out larger prey – listen for their distinctive screeching.
The initial section of Point lookout circuit – about 100m to the first lookout – is flat and easily accessed by those in a wheelchair or with mobility issues.
