  • Drove up to Gan Gan lookout on the first day arriving at Port Stephens. It offers amazing views of the whole area and an amazingly romantic sunset with the wife. Small but informative. Highly...  more »

  • A very good lookout point. A narrow walkway leads to a perfect round lookout space with binoculars from where you can soak in beautiful views of Peak Yaccaba, peak Stephens etc. Go there at the time of sunset or sunrise to catch a beautiful view and get some amazing pics against the sun! Alert: it is very windy out there.
  • Close to the centre of Nelson Bay. Easy drive, short walk from the car and a beautiful, almost 360 degree view from the lookout. Worth the quick trip to get a great lookout over the area.
  • Good place to see the sunset over the mountains in a clear day. A few picnic table and couple of parking spots available. Best to plan your trip to get here just before the sunset. Not much shade available if you are planning a mid day visit.
  • Beautiful, scenic views. A recommended pitstop when you are in Nelsons Bay or Port Stephens. It's an amazing 360 degree view and the drive up the hill is pretty cool too.
  • Beautiful views. Lovely place to visit on a nice day. Some take sandwiches or oysters to eat while Mesmerized with the stunning backdrop of mountains canals bays beaches and Aussie bush
