Beech Lookout

Beech lookout is an absolute must-see spot if you’re visiting Cunnawarra National Park. Here, you can enjoy spectacular views out across the headwaters of Georges River south to Cunnawarra Range, Botumburra Range and beyond into the Macleay River valley.

Just below the lookout are some of NSW’s tallest trees. These majestic forest ribbon gums reach an impressive 70 metres in height and can grow as wide as three metres in diameter. From here, you can also spot the lush green crowns of ancient Antarctic beech trees.

Keep your eyes out for the many threatened species that call the area home. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a powerful owl or glossy black cockatoo in the trees below, or a wedge-tailed eagle soaring across the skies above.
