Named after a spur used by Aboriginals and stockmen in their descent to Mann River, this lookout offers a spectacular survey point for the entire Bindery-Mann Wilderness Area. You can see the challenging slopes and ridges once traversed by early graziers and miners. Sometimes mist rolls in, creating a dazzling scene of ghostly hollows and quiet rainforest down below.
This is a terrific spot for birdwatching: you might even glimpse a wedge-tailed eagle soaring on updrafts created by coastal sea breezes as they push onto the tablelands. Eastern whip birds with their distinctive whip-crack call can also be heard, though watch out for lyrebirds with their unrivalled knack for mimicry.
Bring a picnic lunch and take advantage of the nearby tables, setting down to enjoy the view and the blooming guinea flowers. Whilst early morning and dusk sees wallabies feeding along the road to the lookout.
