Gan Gan Hill Lookout

Enjoy the spectacular views of beautiful Port Stephens and beyond from Gan Gan Hill, one of the highest points in the area and only 3.5 km southwest of Nelson Bay. The Gan Gan Lookout is an iconic tourist attraction on Lilly Hill Road. There is wheelchair access to the viewing platforms.

The top attractions you’ll see include the vast blue bay, the striking Yacabba and Tomaree headlands, the magnificent Tomaree National Park and the towering Stockton Bight sand dunes. You can gaze as far north as Hawks Nest and south along NSW’s longest beach to Newcastle.

Interpretative signage at the lookout will help you identify points of interest.
