The Forest Sky Pier is a spectacular architectural feature providing the panoramic views over the Coffs Coast and Hinterland. Cantilevered off the edge of Sealy Lookout in Orara East State Forest, the Forest Sky Pier projects 22 metres out over rainforest, 15 metres above the forest canopy. The Forest Sky Pier is a 5-10 minute drive off the Pacific Highway through banana plantations and forest, taking in amazing views as you travel up the hill side. It's a must-see destination for the North Coast.

Definitely worth the short and winding road to take in the spectacular views. Even though I have issues with heights I still bravely walked along the sky pier!

We took the beautiful drive to Sealy Lookout and come across the forest sky pier. It has an amazing view, a sign to indicate each item of interest. Nice spot for a photo. We spoke to a local indigenous lady who told us the locals have started taking organised tours and telling cultural education stories from the area. Sounds like... More

This lookout is well worth the short trip from Coffs Harbour, with amazing views from the top. It is only a 11 km drive from the centre of Coffs, and the drive is beautiful as well. There is lots of parking and great picnic tables at the top. The views spread right across to the bay of Coffs and right... More

The Sky Pier is a great little stop. Careful driving up the mountain, the road is a little tight at times. Some great picnic facilities at the top, and some decent walks. Definitely recommended.

Enjoyed our trip up to the Forest Sky Pier. The structure offers amazing views of the Coffs Coast and is easily accessible to everyone (so long as you have a vehicle!). Some nice picnic areas too if you want to enjoy the views a bit longer. We also visited the nearby Korora lookout which gives views further to the north,... More

Brilliant views of Coffs Harbour and beyond...the sky pier is a lovely way to "frame" the view. There is a lovely undercover eating area with tables and chairs, also has public toilets.
