Dunggir National Park is blessed with a rugged terrain of steep rainforest ravines and ridges of soaring eucalyptus trees. Kosekai lookout is one of the best places to appreciate the raw beauty of the place. Perched right near the edge of a major drop, visitors will find a generous panorama over the Nambucca Valley all the way to the NSW coast more than 30km away. Several peaks are plainly visible too, including the impressive Mount Yarrahapinni rising in the distance.
This scenic lookout is good to visit at any time of year, with flowers blooming in the spring. But for particularly crisp views, schedule a stop in winter. Be sure to bring binoculars for birdwatching: rainforest pigeons like the wompoo fruit dove roost in the area.
To stretch out your visit into the afternoon, consider packing lunch, particularly in the warmer months. Supplied picnic tables offer a tantalising reason to settle down with the family and enjoy the stellar view for a little longer.
