Governor Game Lookout
If you'd love a coastal experience without all the sand then this scenic lookout has all the bases covered. Governor Game lookout is a great spot for a break on a car tour of Royal National Park. It offers brilliant coastal views and lovely heathlands, is an ideal spot for birdwatching, and a great place for whale watching during the migratory season.
Inhale the fresh ocean breezes as you step out onto this landmark. The surrounding heathland erupts with a dazzling display of colour in spring; it’s impossible to ignore the heady scent of boronia and hakea. Look for gymea lillies with its striking single red flower, whilst crimson rosellas, lorikeets, and yellow-tailed cockatoos are often seen flitting through the bush.
It’s a great spot to get your bearings or have a quick bite. However, if you’re keen to get amongst it, head down to nearby Garie Beach picnic area for swimming and a barbecue. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch or whale watch.
