Breeza lookout

Coolah Tops National Park

Closed due to current alerts 

Overview

Breeza lookout is in the far south-east of Coolah Tops National Park at the end of The Forest Road. Break out a snack at the small picnic area as you soak up views of the Liverpool and Breeza plains.

This lookout is well worth the 26km drive from the park entrance along The Forest Road, to the head of Jemmy's Creek catchment. Simply park and stroll over to the lookout.

Perched 1000m above sea level, this lofty spot on the Great Dividing Range gives you expansive views across the patchwork of farmland and forest on the plains.

It’s a great stop on a scenic drive in Coolah Tops, especially if you’re camping overnight. Combine Breeza lookout with the drive along Gemini Loop Road, and a visit to Cattle Creek Hut, before looping back to The Forest Road.

Please note that The Forest Road east of the Hildegard Road intersection is closed during winter (June, July and August).

Pack your hiking boots and your mountain bike and be ready to get active in the bush at Coolah Tops. There are plenty of great walking tracks and trails to experience the bush on your bike. Make your way to lookouts like Shepherd's Peak or Breeza lookout for spectacular views to the north over the Liverpool Plains and the sheer escarpment. You'll also find several waterfalls along the escarpment where the creeks plunge over the plateau edge.

Looking out across the beautiful landscape of Coolah Tops National Park, it's obvious why you'll find so much wildlife here. Wander quietly along one of the walking tracks and you'll probably have a close encounter with red-necked wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos. You might also find a wombat waddling through the campground. Coolah Tops has some of the highest population densities of greater gliders in Australia. At night, keep your torch handy to see greater gliders, ring-tailed possums and possibly feather-tailed gliders or a sugar glider in the nearby trees.
