Car Lookouts
As far as the eye can see

If you’re into great views, you’ve come to the right place! Sitting up high on a ridge line or standing on a headland viewing platform, the views around here are totally instagrammable.

Lookouts are dotted along the coastline and in the mountains and forests. Some will require a bit of leg work to reap the rewards of the views. Others will take you off the beaten track. And some are right under your nose, at the end of suburban streets.

Coastal lookouts double as land-based whale watching vantage points during the spring migration. 

Here are just a few of the scenic lookouts on offer in Eurobodalla:

Big Bit Lookout:

With its turnoff sitting just 14km north of Batemans Bay, Big Bit Lookout commands stunning views of the coastline and mountain ranges, making for an unmissable panoramic photo-op.

Holmes Lookout:

Perched high up on the ridgeline, Holmes Lookout peers out over the mighty Clyde River and its meandering form that concludes at the blue of the Pacific Ocean. Batemans Bay and glimpses of the gorgeous Budawang Ranges are also ripe for the viewing.

Observation Point – Batehaven:

An easily accessible lookout just south of Batemans Bay, Observation Point offers a magnificent vista overlooking the beach, all the way to Snapper Island and the north eastern Tollgate Islands.

A road to anywhere

A drive to new places sparks your sense of adventure and discovery.  Eurobodalla has a spectacular coastline easily accessible by a network of paved roads.

But did you know that Eurobodalla also has an amazing hinterland that stretches back to the west into the mountainous reaches of the Great Dividing Range. You can access some areas of the forests and lower climbs of the National Parks via unsealed roads in your family car.

The signposted Tourist Drive 7 is one such coastal route that delivers a gorgeous scenic experience from Batemans Bay to Moruya. This popular 50km coastal tourist road loops around the heart of Moruya for an easy return if you’re feeling so inclined.

If your interest is peaked and you seek more remote tracks and rougher trails we recommend you bring the 4×4 and a topo map. 

Take it from us, put that beach terrace,  Kawana Waters, Sunshine Coast trip on hold. Why settle for a holiday among the overly luxurious canal estates and sleepy beach communities you’re all too used to finding on your way heading north? Why not escape to something a little different, and a little more scenic?
