Point Lookout

We felt like we were up with the clouds - and for very good reason. Point Lookout often is literally in the clouds, nestled in mist at a height of 1560 m/yds, it is the highest point in northern NSW. On a clear day you can see the Pacific Ocean to the far east. 

This magnificent lookout in New England National Park is only 100m from the carpark and is wheelchair friendly. The air is noticeably cooler and damper than at Wollomombi Falls, our previous stop, even though it was only a further 45 minutes drive. 

After enjoying the views we ventured onto the Eagle Nest track which is definitely not wheelchair friendly!

That's Master J you can see at the lower end of the hand rail. The walk is rated as 'difficult' and takes about two hours if you complete the loop. We walked as far as Eagle Nest lookout and soon after turned back to retrace our path which was wet and muddy in places, but not as wet as the track further ahead on the shady southern side.

I could have easily stayed much longer (and walked slower), soaking up the beauty and photo opportunities along the way. It was however 4pm already and we had more places to visit on our adventurous day out.

Sharing at Our World Tuesday, and Sky Watch Friday.
