Captain Cook’s Lookout

Captain Cook’s lookout is located beneath the Smoky Cape lighthouse near South West Rocks. A great spot for picnics and amazing scenic views.

For a scenic treat, make your way to Captain Cook’s lookout at the base of Smoky Cape lighthouse.

Visit between May and July to see southern right and humpback whales swimming past the headland. Or catch them on their return trip between August and October. Playful dolphins can be seen in the area, too.

If you feel like something more energetic, try Jack Perkins walking track or the longer Little Bay to Smoky Cape.
