Easy track
Starting from Tweed Range Scenic Drive, this walk takes you to the Pinnacle Lookout and back via The Pinnacle Walk. Expect out-of-this-world views at the end of this short relaxing stroll in the World Heritage-listed rainforest. You’ll be able to view almost all of the Border Ranges National Park from the lookout, along with the vast coastline in the distance. Mount Warning looks incredible from here, especially at sunrise. 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.
