Hard track
At Nerang Viewpoint, the ground drops away to the north, giving views across to the neighboring forested ridges. This is a short and quiet walk and feels 'off the beaten track'. Initially this walk follows a wide trail, but this soon changes to a foot track following a broad ridge north through scribbly gums and wild flowers. The track has some small uphill and downhill sections and is eroded in places. Let us begin by acknowledging the Guringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Nerang Lookout
Nerang Lookout

Upon arriving at Nerang Lookout of Terrey Hills, the ground drops away to the north, offering filtered views through Banksia trees. Nerang Lookout is an unfenced sandstone platform, with large boulders scattered about. These large boulders create small attractive chasms. Nerang Lookout is a relaxed and pleasant spot to appreciate a typical bush setting within Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.
