Pilot Hill Lookout is a grassed reserve on the site of the Pilot Station light beacon, lookout and signal house that operated at Harrington Beach in the late 1800's.
There is plenty of room for all size rigs on the grass verges adjacent to the formal parking area.

The site includes an information display and a replica of the signal house flagstaff. Nearby are graves associated with the Pilot Station dating back to 1875.

The actual pilot station was located where the Post Office stands today (In Pilot Street between Beach and Hedges Street) just up from Harrington Beach (see Harrington Beach Reserve).

Enjoy spectacular views of the Manning River backchannel and breakwall.

The area is part of the Harrington Beach State Park covering 431 hectares stretching between Harrington and Crowdy Head.
