Feel like a bit of a hike with an incredible reward at the end? Then take the 45-minute trek up the mountain to Rowleys Peak lookout, with its unparalleled views out across the park and the ocean beyond.
Once you’re there, catch your breath while taking a seat on the quartzite rock outcrop, and soaking in the 360-degree panoramic views some 1000m above sea level.
From the viewing platform on top of the mountain, you can see the catchment area of Caparra Creek to the southeast and the extensive forested hinterland toward Nowendoc in the west. Just below the viewing platform lies an outcrop of exposed rocks, which is known as ‘Head and Shoulders Cliff’.
You may even spot a wedge-tailed eagle soaring in the sky above you.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
