Dorrigo to Point Lookout - Geological Self Tour - Ebor Volcano

ebor volcano complex dorrigoPoint Lookout is within the New England National Park off the Waterfall Way about 75 km from Armidale and 60 km from Dorrigo in the Northern Tablelands of northern New South Wales. The site is on the very edge of the Great Escarpment, within rocks of the Ebor Volcano.

Two walks are recommended to provide a cross section through some of the rocks of the Ebor Volcano:

  • The Eagles Nest Lookout loop track from Point Lookout, which travels for 2.5 km through several lavas of different compositions as well as the ancient soil horizons between lava flows
  • The Wrights Lookout walk, which examines some of the volcanic rocks at the base of the lavas and an unusual trachyte intrusion which is part of the Ebor Volcano.
