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.
