Wrights lookout walking track is a 3.4km, grade 4 Return hike located in the New England National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

The walk to Wrights lookout takes you from the lush world of ferns and mosses to a rocky plateau with spectacular panoramic views.
It’s a bit of a scramble to get to the top, but you’ll be rewarded at the end, standing on the top of an ancient trachyte remnant of Ebor Volcano, looking down to Bellinger River in the valley below.
Pack a thermos and enjoy a hot cuppa and a picnic with a view. The views from the top are beautiful all year round, but in spring the heathlands burst with colourful wildflowers. For the birdwatchers, keep your eyes out for honeyeaters as they come to feed on the flowering banksia.
On the way back, why not continue on Lyrebird walking track for the full New England experience? Immerse yourself in the ancient Gondwana rainforests and discover secret dells where lyrebirds call.
