Take the short walk through the granite boulders of Thunderbolts lookout walking track and you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking vistas over the New England landscape.
As you soak in the view from the lookout, take a moment to learn about the legend of Thunderbolt, after whom the lookout is named. Frederick Ward, better known as Captain Thunderbolt, was a bushranger who roamed these very lands in the 1800s. His tales of daring escapes and charismatic persona have become a fascinating part of Australian folklore. The lookout serves as a poignant reminder of the stories that have shaped this region's history.
