Work is underway and the lookout isn’t accessible by car or by foot. Looks like it would have been a nice stroll to seethe view but unfortunately it’s closed.

This lookout is a must for all visitors to this sensational environment. It provides a panorama of the river system, North Shore,Noosa,Noosaville and Tewantin. The sunsets from this venue are spectacular.

I am reluctant to share the news as tourists drove them away but with the recent release of two rehabilitated koalas at the Lookout we have made regular visits to check on their progress. This is a beautiful spot on sunset but please don't frighten...More
