Lookouts with no walking? Sure, that’s easy.

Sometimes you just want a scenic drive topped off with a big view as the big cherry on top, straight from the car. So if you want big views but no walking then hey, no hassles, check out these lookouts around the Barrington Coast.

Some of these have spaces to spread a picnic rug or sit at a picnic table so be sure to pack your favourite portable lunch and refreshments. And if the weather is too challenging then some of these lookouts enable you to peruse the views as you sit comfortably in your car with that picnic on your lap.

But whatever the weather, let your curiosity take you out of the car and closer to the edge.... you know the rewards will be much better.

Listings below include height above sea level, for the purists. Enjoy your picnic.
