Just five minutes from Forster, Cape Hawke lookout offers spectacular 360-degree views along the coast from the top of a dedicated tower, perfect for whale watching.

Positioned right at the northern end of Booti Booti National Park, this superb lookout is worth every step of the 500m hike through regenerating littoral rainforest. Pull on your walking shoes and bring some binoculars and a camera – after around 420 steps you’ll reach an 8.4m tower with 360-degree views of the surrounding area.

There’s Booti Booti to the south, and Wallingat National Park beyond and slightly to the west. On a clear day you can even see as far as Barrington Tops and Crowdy Bay National Park.
