Located in the Central Coast, Staples Lookout is part of the Brisbane Water National Park. This vantage point offers breathtaking views in several directions, including views that are spread out to Mount Wondabyne, the highest point of Brisbane Water National Park.
Staples Lookout was named as a tribute to Charles J Staples, a pioneer of the route that Woy Woy Road now follows. It was constructed in 1955 by the Rotary Club of Woy Woy. It also features an inscription at the Lookout that quotes "And I shall meditate on your wondrous works" from Psalm 119:27.
Bird enthusiasts will also enjoy this lookout, as several rare bird species live here, including the yellow-tailed black cockatoo. Wildlife can also be spotted at the lookout, such as the spotted-tailed quoll. Do not forget your binoculars!
The lookout can easily be missed, as it is located right on the side of the road, but do not drive past without stopping. It is a stunning lookout that offers spectacular views of the whole Brisbane Waters region.
