The Forest Sky Pier is a spectacular architectural feature providing the panoramic views over the Coffs Coast and Hinterland. Cantilevered off the edge of Sealy Lookout in Orara East State Forest, the Forest Sky Pier projects 22 metres out over rainforest, 15 metres above the forest canopy. The Forest Sky Pier is a 5-10 minute drive off the Pacific Highway through banana plantations and forest, taking in amazing views as you travel up the hill side. It's a must-see destination for the North Coast.

Winding drive through banana plantation to sky pier. Great view of Coffs Harbour and surround. Maps to show what area you are looking at. Pier is suspension type so moves if you jump up and down. Worth a visit.

Excellent view from top. You can take your food up and have a picnic which was nice. The drive up was really good - 15 min on a windy road - i think that was the best part.

If you do the walk to the lookout, then it is a good brisk steep walk and you can e boy the view at the end. Otherwise, just drive to further up to the viewing platform.

Had a look on the way up the coast, great views and not too far off the highway. Worth a quick stop!

An amazing lookout - don't miss out on viewing this one. Cooler up there, take a jacket. But wow, sensational sky pier with breathtaking views of coast and hinterland.

You can drive right up to this sky walk. We had a perfectly clear day, we could even see South West Rocks (Smoky Cape) in the horizon. Worth the drive.
