Best of All Lookout
0.5 Hour  / 0.6 Kilometres



Description

Just the name should ensure that most walkers would like to come to Springbrook National Park to have a look-see! The enchanting short stroll to the highest lookout on Springbrook Plateau passes through a small pocket of ancient Antarctic beech forest.

The lookout lives up to its name by providing a panoramic view across Mount Warning - the lava plug centre of the erosion caldera of the extinct Tweed shield volcano - to Byron Bay and Coolangatta, though the view can quickly disappear in the fog and mist that can suddenly roll in from the coast.

The Antarctic beech forest (Nothofagus moorei) is one of our remaining links with the ancient forests of Gondwana. Nothofagus forests were once widespread across the continent and provided a habitat for many animals that have long since disappeared from their landscape.
