Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Cunningham’s Crest was signposted on the Warrego Highway near Plainland so I decided to make the detour into Laidley to check it out. The drive up is about 6km from Laidley town and takes you to a lookout where explorer Allan Cunningham and his party crossed in 1829. You get good views of the Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba/Cunningham’s Gap area, and there is an excellent shaded viewing platform/gazebo with artwork depecting the history of Laidley and the surrounding area. While I was out near Laidley I took another side trip to Lake Dyer, a beautiful big lake with a camping ground not far from Cunningham’s Crest (also signposted). This would be a great place to come back to for camping, and do some kayaking and /or stand up paddle boarding.

It's definitey worth the short drive out to Cunningham Crest from Laidley Town Centre, roughly six kilometres, from the lookout there are wonderful views over the Lockyer Valley. The best views are from the top rotunda at the lookout, walking up from the rotunda with a picnic table at the bottom, enjoy the artwork and regional information on the walls of the wooden walkway as you climb to the top (about 40 steps).
