You’ll feel like you’re on the edge of the known world while standing on Devils Hole lookout in Barrington Tops National Park. Suitable for wheelchairs, the easy, paved track winds from Devils Hole campground and picnic area to a lookout platform with magnificent views over the vast World Heritage-listed wilderness. Between Scone and Gloucester, it’s a brilliant leg stretcher and picnic spot on a car tour of this unique region.

From the lookout, you’ll be standing where the mountains touch the sky. The snow-grassed montane woodland of the gentle Barrington plateau stretches behind, while dense forests, wild gorges, and ridges of the Barrington wilderness lie below. On a clear day, the view extends to the coast, over 90km to the east.

If the clear mountain air has kickstarted your appetite, stroll back and unpack the hamper at the picnic area. If you’re hungry for more scenery, try nearby Thunderbolts lookout.
