THE staff at the Sealy Lookout Forest Sky Pier are walking on air after they were awarded gold for best new development at the North Coast Tourism Awards.
The $600,000 project by Forests NSW opened last December and was hailed as a great addition to the many attractions in and around Coffs Harbour.
The panoramic platform extends 21m out from the cliff face more than 300m above sea-level.
State Primary Industries Minister Katrina Hodgkinson paid tribute to the team behind the Sky Pier this week.
"The Forest Sky Pier within the Orara East State Forest is the realisation of Forest NSW's vision to create a landmark attraction showcasing the scenic location and forest environment," Ms Hodgkinson said.
