Soak up the scenery at Bouddi National Park’s Gerrin Point lookout.

Gerrin Point lookout is located along Bouddi coastal walk, reached from the eastern end of Putty Beach. It’s easy to find from Putty Beach, simply follow the track for about 1.2km, and then climb the stairs to a boardwalk which leads to the Gerrin Point lookout.

Once there, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of Maitland Bay and the Bouddi National Park Marine Extension. Backed by the Bouddi Grand Deep rainforest, these views are second-to-none. There’s a comfortable bench built into the lookout fence, making it an ideal spot to rest your legs and take in the coastal views and sea air. The lookout can get quite windy some days – bring a jacket and insect repellent to keep the mozzies at bay. If you're there during whale watching season, you're in for an extra treat.
