Point Lookout (New South Wales)
The view from Point Lookout
|Elevation||1,564 m (5,131 ft)|
|Location||New South Wales|
|Range||Great Dividing Range|
It is the second highest peak in the Snowy Range, a spur of the Great Dividing Range which forms the highest part, and eastern edge of the Northern Tablelands. During cold spells the mountain may receive a light dusting of snow.
Point Lookout is also the name of the main visitor location in the New England National Park. The Point Lookout Road is accessed via Waterfall Way and is 85 kilometres east of Armidale and 75 km from Dorrigo. The lookouts have spectacular views east across the Bellinger River valley, out to the more developed areas of the north coast of New South Wales and the Pacific Ocean on a clear day.
On the escarpment only 10 minutes walk south is Banksia Point. There are a number of cabins and a hut here. These are available from the National Parks and Wildlife Service for short term stays in the park.
