Granite Falls Lookout
Where: Bendalong / Ulladulla area
Granite Falls Lookout is a short easy walk from the carpark. It is just over 1km return through Eucalyptus forest, and the trail is also marked with interpretive signs highlighting the history of the area, plus the native flora and fauna.
Granite Falls is a 63 metre high falls that runs down the sloping granite rock face into the valley below and is located within Morton National Park.
The walk is suitable for small children but there are several stairs once you reach the lookout. The lookout itself is a large fenced platform suspended over the falls and is a great place to stop for a snack (there is a seat).
To add an extra activity to your day, once back at the car drive back to the turnoff to the lookout and follow the signs for approximately 2km along 12 Mile Road to George Boyd Lookout. There are toilets and a picnic area here adjacent to the carpark. The lookout is reached by a 1km return trail through rainforest, taking you to a short climb up a ladder to where you will get uninterrupted views of the Shoalhaven coastline.
