Experience Details

Once a popular spot for bushrangers, it's now visitors to Barrington Tops National Park who benefit from magnificent views at Thunderbolts lookout, near Scone. This short and easy walk will delight the senses as you gaze across the World Heritage Barrington wilderness. It's a perfect introduction to the unique delights of the plateau country, on a car touring day trip or camping holiday. Passing through a majestic stand of Antarctic beech trees, where moss carpets the forest floor, look for delicate orchids high in the branches as you make your way to the lookout. Soak in the spectacular vista of the deep valley leading to the Moppy River below and Mount Carson beyond. Wedge-tailed eagles often circle in the skies above, looking for prey. When you're ready for a bite, head to the Honeysuckle picnic area for a leisurely lunch. If you're hankering for a night under the stars, try nearby Devils Hole campground and picnic area.
