Jacks lookout, in the Lower Snowy Mountains region of Kosciuszko National Park, a scenic drive from Jindabyne, offers superb views across the southern Australian Alps. Located south of Jindabyne's Snowy Region Visitor Centre, this spectacular lookout is a perfect stop on a driving tour of the remote southern regions of the park.
It’s a gorgeous spot at any time of year, but is particularly striking on clear winter days when a bright blue sky makes the perfect backdrop to the surrounding peaks. It’s a perfect panorama fringed with towering eucalypts and cypress pines. In spring, the coloured wattles that bloom here are a delight to see.
There’s plenty of interesting wildlife to spot around this area too, so keep your eyes open for kangaroos, wallabies and emus during the day and wombats and quolls at night. If you’re keen to pitch your tent, it’s a short drive to Running Waters campground.
