Piccaninny Creek Lookout, Purnululu NP
The 2.8km return trail to the Piccaninny Creek Lookout at Purnululu National Park gives you an impressive overall view. Walking to the lookout involves a reasonably easy walk negotiating the stony creek bed of Piccaninny Creek.
About the Trail
The water smooth rock of the creek bed provides a vivid example of the erosive forces of countless monsoonal rains and the ‘beehive’ formations provide a dramatic backdrop.
If you are lucky, hollows in the bedrock may contain water providing spectacular reflections. There is a steady climb up to the lookout where a railing provides some reassurance and safety. The views across the savannah plains to distant ‘beehive’ outcrops and ranges are spectacular.
