Grand High Tops lookout

Warrumbungle National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Grand High Tops lookout is in Warrumbungle National Park along Breadknife and Grand High Tops walk. This lofty summit is a great place to soak up breathtaking views of this ancient volcanic landscape.

Reach the summit lookout with a short but steep climb up Lugh’s Throne on the Grand High Tops section of the Breadknife and Grand High Tops walk. 

Your efforts will be well rewarded. Perched a lofty 960m above sea level, you’ll be surrounded by dykes, plugs and lava domes—the impressive remains of the once-huge Warrumbungle volcano. 

It’s the perfect spot for a well-deserved lunch break. Enjoy views of the Breadknife, the Needle and Belougery and Tonduron Spires. You’ll also see Crater Bluff, Balor Peak and Bluff Mountain.
