  • Ok for a quick stop to look at the mountains & landscape. View is partially obscured by a house and large tree if you were hoping for a good panaroma shot. Preferred other look outs in the area  more »
  • Excellent viewpoint of the Sunshine Coast and Glasshouse Mountains. Has a very nice rotunda with seats. What more can I say...  more »
  • Lovely view! The parking also offers multiple carparks so you, your friends and family can all park together. The map gives you a beautiful painting that offers you the names of mountains you can see.
  • Wonderful lookout + bins and table and map of glass house mountains. Make sure you go to the botanical gardens around the corner and pat a parrot.
