A pleasant and easy walk through bushland to the Lookout
Located in the heart of the Royal National Park, Bungoona Lookout offers breathtaking scenic views!

The Lookout offers breathtaking unspoiled views of the Hacking River and surrounding lush bushland...

Bungoona Lookout is an easy wheelchair-accessible 30-minute return walk, making it a perfect leisurely day out with picturesque surroundings and opportunities for picnics and birdwatching.

Admiring the awe-inspiring views...

The smooth and mostly flat concrete path is a pleasant walk that winds gently down through bushland to the ridgetop and to the scenic platform lookout, where panorama views of Hacking River and surroundings can be admired.

There are many picnic tables to enjoy before or after the easy scenic walk to the Lookout...

The short walk also meanders through the lush forest, passing through the beautiful Angophora tree on a rock and surrounding hills that can be seen through the trees.

The walking path to the Lookout is an easy wheelchair accessible and pram/stroller walk...

Along the track do keep an eye out for birds, including the yellow-tailed cockatoos and lorikeets feasting in the banksias.

Keep an eye out on the walking trail for wildlife...

Nearby, Reids Flat Picnic Area can be found, where a relaxing and tranquil picnic or rest can be enjoyed after the short walk to Bungoona Lookout.

The walk begins at the Area Office Carpark, passing through a quiet picnic area. There is a sign with an arrow pointing to the walk and lookout.

There are plenty of bench seats along the pathway to the lookout and bench seats are available at the lookout platform as well as handrails along the pathway.
