Careys Peak lookout

Barrington Tops, NSW, 2422

Experience Details

You'll feel on top of the world gazing across the rugged gorges and dramatic mountain ranges of Barrington Tops National Park from Careys Peak lookout. At 1,544m, this walk-in lookout is one of the highest points in the park and a popular destination for bushwalkers, via Careys Peak walking track. From the summit, you'll be standing on the edge of the plateau, surrounded by World Heritage-listed wilderness. Notice how the steep ridges run south like the fingers of an outstretched hand. On a clear day, you can see from the Blue Mountains across to the Stockton sand dunes near Newcastle. Enjoy a well-earned picnic stop, with a spectacular backdrop, before heading back by walking track to Mount Barrington. If you want to make a weekend of it, it's a medium walk to Wombat Creek campground or Black Swamp campground for a high-altitude evening beneath the stars. Take a virtual tour of Careys Peak lookout captured with Google Street View Trekker.
