Disaster Bay Lookout
The scenic lookout from Disaster Bay in Ben Boyd National Park offers striking views over Disaster Bay and Nadgee-Howe Wilderness Area.
Disaster Bay lookout is the perfect spot to enjoy birdwatching and nature photography while taking in the unspoilt coastline of the NSW Far South Coast region. It’s a perfect stop on a driving tour, taking in the coastal delights of Ben Boyd National Park.
Looking out to sea, soak in the amazing views and natural beauty of Disaster Bay and Pacific Ocean. Behind you, the magnificent Nadgee-Howe Wilderness Area runs all the way to the Victorian border.
From here, you might see migrating whales from late May to early December, with the best sightings around September through November. Bring your binoculars and keep your eyes peeled for local seabirds such as the Australasian gannet, oystercatchers and the white-bellied sea eagle.
