Even if you are only visiting Meroo National Park for a few hours, you can’t miss the spectacular coastal views from Meroo Head lookout walking track. It’s a lovely short walk through tall forest to the northern edge of the headland, then you’ll emerge to panoramic views of uninterrupted coastline.

Stretching out into the distance, you’ll see dazzling coastal waters and unspoilt wilderness. Take a moment to take it all in and take advantage of the excellent birdwatching from this magnificent spot.

If you have time, follow the track around the headland back to the carpark or head down to Meroo Beach. For the energetic, why not continue along the Nuggan Point walking track for more dramatic coastal views and another great vantage point for whale watching.
