About this place
Skipjack Point Lookout is perched on the cliff edge where you can enjoy the spectacular Cape Peron coastline and wildlife. It can be accessed from the Wanamalu Walk Trail.
Be sure to look towards the ocean along the way for a chance to see marine life such as dolphins, sharks, rays, dugongs, turtles or schools of fish.
Wanamalu Walk Trail
This trail stretches for 1.5km along the cliff edge between Cape Peron and Skipjack Point. Spectacular red sand cliffs extend in either direction, offering fantastic photo opportunities. The 45-minute (one-way) walk provides excellent views of the coastline and it is common to see marine wildlife such as rays, sharks, dolphins, schools of fish and flocks of cormorants.
