Lookouts and scenic vantage points
At about 1000m above sea level, Norths lookout is where you go when you want to see for miles. This natural granite platform offers 180-degree scenic views of entire regions: Upper Murray Valley, the western face of Snowy Mountains, Riverina district and the town of Holbrook. There’s an interpretive board onsite to help you identify this outstanding Australian landscape.
You’ll need your 4WD to get here and once you’ve arrived you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to take your binoculars and camera on this sightseeing visit as you’ll want to photograph and remember these scenic views well beyond your time here.
Near the lookout, you’ll also see beautiful flowers, especially during spring. Common fringe myrtle and native fuchsia, with its red bell-like blossoms, all compete for your attention. Birdwatchers should note that birds of prey are known to swoop through the sky near the lookout, and wallabies often visit this area.
