For scenic views with altitude, Wallace Creek lookout, in the Kiandra region of Kosciuszko National Park, offers spectacular alpine scenery. Within easy access from the carpark, this cliff-top lookout is moderately wheelchair-accessible and ideal for travellers of all ages.

From the lookout, gaze across the grandeur of Great Dividing Range and the majestic Yarrangobilly River valley. In the distance, you’ll see the dramatic summits of the Talbingo mountains and Bogong Peaks. Keep your eyes peeled and you might see lyrebirds, or hear their call, echoing through the trees.

It’s a great spot to get your bearings before exploring the park. 4WD enthusiasts can drive along Lobs Hole Ravine trail or, if you prefer a bushwalk, there’s nearby Goldseekers track.
