Myrtle Mountain Lookout


You may think driving through the park’s lush wet-fern forest is as stunning as it gets, but then you arrive at Myrtle Mountain lookout. Located on Myrtle Mountain Road, this hidden gem offers a sweeping northern vista across Bega Valley farmland. You’re also treated to eastern views of scenic Candelo and Wolumla, as well as the fringing escarpment and rolling hills surrounding the valley. The ideal place to stretch your legs, take a tea break and soak up some views while driving from Eden or Bega, this lookout is popular with travellers and locals alike. Relax at a picnic table and feel the crisp NSW south coastal breeze. Listen out and scan the undergrowth for lyrebirds or, if you’re stopping by at night, look out for possums and gliders in the area.
