Looking for a walk in a lovely patch of bush complete with a great viewing platform and 180 degree views over the Coffs coast. The drive up is a little bumpy if your precious about your car, but nothing major and certainly every car can...More

There are some nice walks through the forest - generally rather undulating and challenging, so don't plan to go too far. On this day there were heaps of leeches which caused a lot of distress for one of the girls in particular. Make sure you...More

About a 6km winding drive from the highway up the mountain to the lookout. Plenty of parking. One main picnic area with a few smaller tables below. The lookout lets you see all of Coffs Harbour. 5 mins from the main shopping centre. Also a...More

Most people come on this road to visit the Sealy lookout. The lookout is worthwhile, but it is also worth stopping to read the information about the trails in the gap area. You will see the big information signs as you head for the lookout....More

There are a couple of walks here to do from the Gap car park. Narrow walking tracks but lots of fun. Not well maintained but that could of been because it was winter and not so popular. One of the bridges was out and one...More

Hi AU-girl, Thanks for the feedback on our walking tracks. We have been working on them in recent weeks, and a new bridge was installed with the help of Conservation Volunteers. Maintaining the tracks does take time, but we've taken on board your comments and...More

Magnificent views from this beautiful lookout - close to the Big Banana and a definite must-see when you're in Coffs Harbour.

Drive up Bruxnor Park and when you come to the left turn up to Sealy lookout you will see a small carpark (there are no lines, just park in front of the sign). I have done this many times and recommended starting walking down. There...More

Hi chelseytolhurst, We thought you might like to know that we're currently building an all-weather picnic shelter next to the Forest Sky Pier at Sealy Lookout. Will be another great picnic spot if you're looking for one with a view. Thanks for the review. Cheers,...More

Only a short drive up to the park and certainly worth the effort for the view. Great views of the entire Coffs Harbour area and that area of the east coast. BEAUTIFUL. NOT much else to say.

Hi Mc M - depends if you want to do the rainforest walk or just the Sky Pier. I don't think you can take a dog into the rainforest. It's steep, slippery and there's lots of leeches - a lot of hassle with a pet. However I'm... More
