Forest Sky Pier, Orara East State Forest
Only a short drive off the Pacific Highway from Coffs Harbour, the Forest Sky Pier at Niigi Niigi - Sealy Lookout sits within a flora reserve in Orara East State Forest, part of the amazing State Forests of the Coffs Coast, on Gumbayggirr country.
A 10-minute drive from Coffs Harbour up through banana plantations reaches the lookout, it's open to vehicles during daylight hours, and your visit is free.
Here, the Forest Sky Pier offers magnificent coastal views over the city of Coffs Harbour and up and down the coastline. There are walking tracks through the rainforest, ranging from one to three hours, and picnic tables and toilets are provided. A covered picnic shelter is available for those with mobility issues, and the Forest Sky Pier is accessible (no steps) from the car park. Coach parking is also available.
Whilst at the lookout, grab a coffee from Nyanggan Gapi cafe, check out Coffs Treetops (maybe even book ahead - it's a popular canopy adventure!), or walk 500 metres down the road to the beautiful Gumgali Track (which ends at Korora Lookout). Gumgali Track shares the Gumbaynggirr story of Gumgali the black goanna in sculpture, art and sound.
