Bruxner Park is only a short drive off the Pacific Highway from Coffs Harbour. Sealy Lookout and the Forest Sky Pier sit within a flora reserve in Orara East State Forest – part of the amazing state Forests of the Coffs Coast. It’s open to vehicles during daylight hours, and your visit is free.
Bruxner Park Attractions
For an unforgettable rainforest experience close to Coffs Harbour, visit Bruxner Park Flora Reserve. Ride north along the Pacific Highway for about 5km from Coffs Harbour, winding up through banana plantations and avocado groves, and you will find The Gap where the Rainforest Trail starts. You can also ride about 1km further to Halfway Creek to the beginning of the Creek Trail.
A 2km scenic ride from The Gap takes you to the Korora Lookout Trail and to the Sealy Lookout point. Both offer beautiful views of the Coffs Coast. Sealy Lookout offers amazing views of the entire Coffs Harbour area. At 310 metres above sea level the views are just breathtaking! An impressive new Sky Pier with a viewing platform opened at Sealy Lookout in late 2011, providing even better views over the treetops. Korora Lookout was also upgraded with a boardwalk and viewing platform in late 2012 and offers amazing views north across Coffs Coast’s Northern Beaches and the Solitary Islands Marine Park.
Bruxner Park is a 15 minute ride from the centre of Coffs Harbour. It makes a great first stop if you’re new to the area as you can see the entire Coffs Coast laid out before you from Sealy Lookout. If you just want a short 30 minute tour, you can ride up to Sealy Lookout and then loop back home again.
For an hour tour, you can start with Sealy Lookout then take the back roads through the hinterland and rainforest area to the west of the highway as you head back towards Coffs. A two hour tour would allow you to go from Sealy Lookout, then up to Woolgoolga and back.
