A lookout that will certainly leave you in awe
One of the most impressive Lookouts is situated in the suburb of Batehaven. Rising above the river mouth and overlooking Clyde River, Snapper and Tollgate Islands, parts of Batemans Bay and the stunning Pacific Ocean, Observation Head Lookout will certainly leave you in awe...

The perfect spot to impress your lover...

The headland offers expansive views up and down the coast, and what makes it more striking is the fact that the entire Observation Head Lookout headland is formed entirely on sedimentary rock.

It is the oldest rocks to crop out around this part of the coast!

The rocks have an ochre source that comprises most of the steep cliffs on the northern and north-western side of the headland. The coloured clays of the cliffs face are highly aesthetic...

One of the abundant views from the Lookout...

The cliffs are extremely steep and are around thirty metres tall. Do be careful as there is no fencing around the tracks.

There are several walking tracks around the Lookout, with each track offering you a different perspective.

You can even find a romantic spot to sit and cuddle as you enjoy a snack or two while overlooking the ocean. This lookout makes the ultimate romantic picnic spot on the edge, overlooking the surrounding beauty.

Corrigans and Caseys beaches are visible from the Lookout. You will be impressed with the golden sands and different hued seas, as well as the vast vantage points across the Lookout.

Check out those spectacular hues...

Observation Head Lookout has a rich history and is of great importance to the local Aboriginal community- it represents direct links to a traditional past and also to a more recent present.

Next time if you are driving past or staying around the area be sure to add this to your list of things to do, as you will be disappointed if you miss this hidden gem!

There is plenty of parking at the Lookout.
