Make your way to George Boyd lookout to see the beauty of NSW’s South Coast region from up high.

Gorge yourself on expansive coastal and hinterland views spanning all the way from Jervis Bay to Kioloa. Check out the incredible surrounding landscape, dominated by tall-treed rainforest, caves and impressive overhangs, and see if you can make out Lake Conjola and Pigeon House Mountain Didthul amongst it all.

As well as enjoying these scenic Shoalhaven views, you can walk the short track between the lookout and picnic area below. If you’re keen to try a longer walk, start from the lower carpark and traverse the base of the escarpment via a spectacular rainforest track.

This part of Morton National Park is known for its forest owls, so if you’re visiting at night, stay quiet and listen carefully. Plus, remember to keep an eye out for the inquisitive origma – or rockwarbler – the only bird endemic to NSW. You may well spot one of these small brownish-grey critters hopping across the sandstone rocks or probing between them for insects.
