Gan Gan Lookout

What you can expect

Many regions in Australia boast an iconic lookout point from which to take in some pleasant views, but few can compare to Nelson Bay's Gan Gan Lookout in the Port Stephens region of the NSW central coast. Situated on the town's outskirts, the 160m-high viewing area offers a commanding panorama of Port Stephens' characteristic blue waters and vast stretches of beach as well as views spanning all the way to Newcastle in the distance. The view is unobscured and the lookout comes equipped with various plaques that detail the history of the lookout and the region as a whole, providing context for first-time visitors. Throw in some wonderful nature surrounding it, and you've got a spot that provides one of Oz's best regional views.
