Please note
The weather in this area can be extreme and unpredictable, so please ensure you’re well-prepared for your visit.

Adams lookout may seem to be a pretty ordinary name, so it may not prepare you for the extraordinary view that awaits you at the end of the walkway. Like a well-constructed movie, the relatively flat paved path keeps you in suspense nearly all the way to the two-tiered platform.

You’re then hit with the most fantastic view in the park of the 300m high limestone cliffs of Bungonia Slot Canyon (only 25m apart), the beautiful Bungonia Creek Gorge and distant views of Ettrema Wilderness way over in Morton National Park.

After you’ve managed to turn away from the spectacular view, have a look around to see if you can spot the pair of nesting peregrine falcons that regularly fly above the gorge near this lookout. Bring a picnic lunch with you and, like the rock-climbers who come to Bungonia to scale its canyon walls, hang around for a while. Finally, join up with the Green track to explore more of the natural environment.

Take a virtual tour of Adams lookout captured with Google Street View Trekker.
