If you'd love a coastal experience without all the sand then this scenic lookout has all the bases covered. Governor Game lookout is a great spot for a break on a car tour of Royal National Park. It offers brilliant coastal views and lovely heathlands, is an ideal spot for birdwatching, and a great place for whale watching during the migratory season.
Inhale the fresh ocean breezes as you step out onto this landmark. The surrounding heathland erupts with a dazzling display of colour in spring; it’s impossible to ignore the heady scent of boronia and hakea. Look for gymea lillies with its striking single red flower, whilst crimson rosellas, lorikeets, and yellow-tailed cockatoos are often seen flitting through the bush.
It’s a great spot to get your bearings or have a quick bite. However, if you’re keen to get amongst it, head down to nearby Garie Beach picnic area for swimming and a barbecue. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch or whale watch.
The conservation and coastal engravings project in the Royal National Park is working to preserve one of the region’s finest expressions of Aboriginal culture: the Jibbon Headland Aboriginal engravings. A new boardwalk and viewing platform limit the foot access that was damaging the engravings, while encroaching soil and vegetation are being removed.
