Starting from Mooloomba Road, Point Lookout, this walk takes you on a circuit on the headland of Point Lookout via the Gorge Walk track, visiting multiple lookouts along the way. Prepare to be overwhelmed by the views and wildlife on this walk. From groups of kangaroos around the track to dolphins and sea turtles in the ocean, you’ll have a lot to look out for. Manta rays and sharks may show themselves as well. If you’re here around September by any chance, you may even see the colossal humpback whales migrating. If lucky, you’ll even witness one go up in the air and splash tremendous amounts of water when it comes down. The track is well maintained and secured by railings, making it family friendly. Besides the ample wildlife, the stunning coastal views and the vast ocean is enough to make the trip worthwhile. After the leisurely walk, cool off at the panoramic beach nearby to magnify the experience. Keep in mind that the track is quite exposed, so sunscreen and a hat is recommended. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
