Smooth & flat
Starting from the end of Repeater Station Road, Springbrook, this short walk takes you to the Best of All Lookout and back via a bitumen track, exploring the woodland of Numinbah Nature reserve along the way. The lookout has quite the name, and it manages to impress every visitor even if it’s not the best lookout they've visited. Expect a 180-degree panoramic view over the Tweed Valley, with great looks of Mount Warning and Byron Bay as well. You’ll also be able to inspect the gorgeous Antarctic Beech Trees along the track. There is an abundance of birdlife in the area, so keep an eye out for various species including Albert’s Lyrebird. You’ll be walking under the rainforest canopy until you come to the lookout. Keep in mind that the area is quite popular, so come early to avoid the crowd and have the place to yourself. Although it can be quite cloudy if you come too early. 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.
