The spectacular cliffs along the Murramarang coastline are on fine display from North Head lookout. After following a well-formed track for 300m over gently undulating hills, you’ll arrive at a safe vantage spot with excellent views of the coastal headland and the wide blue sea. Bring the kids and a pair of binoculars – whales migrate past in winter, making this a perfect spot for whale watching. Pods of dolphins are often visible, too.

If birdwatching is an interest, North Head lookout is also a terrific place to see some of the 90 beautiful species that live in Murramarang National Park. Sea eagles and peregrine falcons like to make their homes in the cliff-faces and sometimes circle overhead – don’t forget to look up.

After taking your fill of the view, consider heading down to one of Murramarang’s gorgeous beaches and passing a lazy afternoon by the water’s edge.
