Kinchela Trig Lookout Walk

Kinchela Trig Lookout Walk

DETAILS

This short track leads gently uphill to reveal spectacular views of coastal estuaries and mountain hinterland, on the North Coast of NSW, south of Nambucca Heads. Not far from Hungry Gate campground, it’s a great introduction to the remote wilderness of the southern section of Hat Head National Park.

Kinchela Trig lookout walk winds through well-established banksia groves up to the trig station, marked with a concrete plinth. In spring, the vibrant red banksia flowers make for excellent birdwatching, attracting rosellas and cockatoos. During summer, the surrounding bush comes to life with cicada song.

Enjoy the fresh breeze off the ocean, as you take in the dramatic coastline stretching as far as the eye can see. Directly in front, you’ll be rewarded with a bird’s eye view of the headland. Keep your eyes peeled as sea-eagles and brahminy kites cruise the skies above this rugged stretch of coast.
