This is a stunning view over the kangaroo valley. It is signposted as Mannings lookout and is 2k down a bumpy turnoff but well worth the effort. Some care required as there are no railings and it is a sheer drop from the cliff edge.

Driving through a suburb you did not expect to come across this quaint park that has beautiful views. Easy to get to, peaceful and tranquil!

It is well hidden off the main road and unless you know about it, you won't find it as no signs point to it. The view is fantastic, Manning River and the valley. Worth getting off the freeway. Stop and enjoy the views.

The ever changing views from the Apex Lookout continue to draw me back to this location. Whether it is early morning with mist or the afternoon sunsets over the river with the changes to the countryside, I enjoy every visit.

This lookout offers a very nice view across the manning river and valley. The facilities are well looked after as are the gardens. It is worth a stop.

A picturesque spot in Taree. Nice in the morning watching the low cloud rolling in across the valley

If you visiting or passing through Taree, this lookout is worth checking out. It is just a short drive from the main Pacific Highway and perfect for a quiet rest stop. No coffee shop so BYO.

We were recommended this spot and once we found it, we understood why. The signage could have been better as we got lost on the way, but eventually arrived.We enjoyed our 20 minute relaxation looking down on this wonderful river valley.
