Illawarra Lookout Walking Track

Don’t have much time, but want to discover the wonders of this fragile environment? A walk to Illawarra lookout is a must, with spectacular views, colourful spring wildflowers and amazing birdlife.

Starting from Barren Grounds picnic area, this short trail moves along an undulating path through woodland and heath. Before you know it, you’ll arrive at Illawarra lookout, perched on the edge of the escarpment looking down across the hinterland, rolling green hills, and the stunning coastline.

Breathe in the fresh air, take in the spectacular views, then wander back to the picnic area for a relaxing lunch and a hot cuppa.

Along the way, you might spot an echidna waddling across the track, and you’re bound to see an abundance of birdlife. You’ll be walking through the prime habitat of ground parrots and eastern bristlebirds, so keep an eye out for these threatened birds.
