Closed areas: Muirs lookout picnic area closed
NPWS has closed Muirs lookout and picnic area effective from Monday 20 June 2022.
Factors contributing to the closure include:
- road access is not suitable for 2WD vehicles and has been damaged and eroded following heavy and ongoing rainfall
- visitor facilities, including picnic tables and toilets, are unsafe and outdated
- toilets don’t meet NPWS and health standards
- views from the lookout to the coast have diminished due to grown tall trees and vegetation.
The surrounding area, including Watagans National Park and neighbouring state forests, have alternative sites for lookouts and picnic areas.
The closest lookouts are located off Mt Faulk Road to the north and include Heaton, Hunter and Macleans lookouts.
