Oxley lookout

Oxley Wild Rivers National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Oxley lookout is in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park along Oxley walking track. It’s a great place to view the rock amphitheatre of the upper falls.

The first of several great viewpoints along this walk, Oxley lookout is where John Oxley and his party stood in 1818. The falls are just as impressive today as they would have been more than 200 years ago when these explorers first saw them.

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
