Stand where the mountains touch the skies
Have you ever seen mountains so high that they almost touch the sky? Well, you will, at the World-Heritage Listed Barrington Tops National Park, this is the place where you will find awe-inspiring scenic views that will absolutely steal your breath away.
A breathtaking view of the mountains at the Lookout.
Devil's Hole Lookout is certainly one Lookout to add to the bucket list, with spectacular views of mountains and their peaks, you cannot help but get a feeling like you are standing on the edge of the world.
The viewing point allows you to witness pure beauty with nothing but unspoilt and untouched by man natural landscape with magnificent mountains soaring above touching the sky as the clouds float onto the peaks of the mountains. It is hard to comprehend why they will call this piece of heaven Devil's Hole Lookout - as it looks just like heaven!
As you start to look around you will notice snow-grassed montane woodland with dense forests, wild gorges and ridges of pure wilderness that lay below. We were extremely lucky to witness this Lookout on a clear day, where the peaks of the mountains go as far as the eye can see, enticing your senses and making you not want to leave.
Mountains peaks can be seen as far as the eye can see.
To get to Devil's Hole Lookout, you need to take Thunderbolts Way from Gloucester and eventually the road becomes Scone Rd and Barrington Tops Forest Rd. After passing Thunderbolts Lookout, Devil's Hole Lookout can be found and the walk begins on the left- opposite Devil's Hole campground.
Parking can be found at the picnic area.
Devils Hole Lookout makes a perfect rest stop and picnic area too!
