Tomaree lookout has the best view around, but Gan Gan Lookout is a good option for those who dont want to do the 40minute - 1hour walk up with kids, elderly or those who just can be bothered! You can drive most of the way...More

If you are in the area then it's certainly worth driving up the short road to have a look at the surrounding views. Not a big carpark so parking can be a problem.

It’s a freaky place and pretty dangerous to drive up and it gives you that rapey kind of vibe yeah I just don’t feel it.

Only a short drive from Nelson Bay. Gives great views right over Nelson Bay and Anna Bay. Lots of Gymea Lilies. Well worth a visit

Great views from this lookout of the ocean. Only a short walk from your car to access the views of Nelson Bay.

Views 50 km north east to Seal Rocks. Overlook Yacaaba and Tomaree and Fingal Beach to the east. See Boat Harbour and Stockton Beach to the south. Combined with more Gymea Lillies I have ever seen in the one place! What a magic place.

Wonderful views of Port Stephens area. Walk up the path past the microwave tower and find good signs to views. Worth a visit and photos and places to go to visit in future. There is a small carpark no toilets or water.
