Mount Talowla lookout has sweeping 360-degree views across Toorale National Park and State Conservation Area, and beyond. This site is known by local Kurnu-Baakandji People as Withawitha Iaana. This exceptional vantage point provides intrepid travellers and first-time visitors with a great introduction to the vast outback landscape of north-west NSW, near Bourke.
The lookout offers a great spot for birdwatching, so be sure to bring along your binoculars for a chance to see wedge-tailed eagles soaring above. In spring, the fluffy yellow heads of foxtail flowers peep above the drying grass tussocks.
At the summit, dotted mulga trees show off their yellow flowers in winter months. Gaze across to Dunlop Range in the south and Mount Gunderbooka in the east, as well as the seemingly never-ending western floodplains. Lines of trees in the distance indicate the path of ephemeral waterways.
