“View of a lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

The view is magnificent especially when the paragliders take off. You can see out to the ocean and Port Macquarie and the wildlife is abundant. The coffee shop serves good coffee. Well worth the trip up a steep mountain road, steep but safe.

“Great View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

I recommend for anyone travelling into this town to take a look at the lookout. Amazing views and it costs nothing.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Great location for a picnic. The area contained several BBQ areas and picnic tables. Lookouts were located on both sides and the grassy area was the picture perfect spot to take in the view of the coast, rivers and Port Macquarie.

“Fantastic view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

It is well worth the trip up the winding, but well sealed, road to the top of North Brother Mountain. With breathtaking coastal views to both north and south, a welcome refreshment van and clean toilets, this makes an ideal half day out for visitors to the region. On some days, you may be fortunate to watch hang gliders launching from the hillside for their exhilarating flight down to sea level.
Well recommended
