Fans Horizon lookout

Warrumbungle National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Fans Horizon lookout is in Warrumbungle National Park, at the end of Fans Horizon walking track. This exposed lookout offers magnificent views of iconic Warrumbungles spires and domes.

Perched atop the cliffs of Balgatan Mountain, this lookout is well worth the short but challenging hike. It’s perfect for bushwalkers who are pressed for time but keen to see the Warrumbungles' famous volcanic rock formations.

Tuck into a picnic lunch as you feast your eyes on panoramic views of the iconic Breadknife, Belougery Spire and Crater Bluff.
