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.

360-degree stunning view of the entire Sunshine coast!
You can see in infinity! Green mountains and sea all together!

Good to stop at when travelling past and see the sight. Wouldn't go specifically out of my way to see it but it is nice. Road next to it is kind of dodgy with a bank so you can't really see oncoming cars when pulling out

Driving towards Kenilworth we came upon this lookout, very windy up there but excellent view. It was a steep road.

Good views towards the Glass House mountains but in my view second to the Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World, top gazebos.

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

Excellent viewpoint of the Sunshine Coast and Glasshouse Mountains. Has a very nice rotunda with seats. What more can I say...

It's an easy to miss stop that has the best views of the Glasshouse Mountains. On a clear day you can see the highrise of Brisbane. On a misty day you get beautiful scenes of mountains. On my last visit, the sea shimmered in the distance. No matter what the weather it is impressive.

This is one of 3 great places to see the Glasshouse mountains and beyond.
It’s a nice spot to take a coffee and reflect in the afternoon or on a nice sunny day .
Nothing there except the view

Discovered this lookout by chance. Rewarded with a glorious sunset as storm clouds rolled in from coastline.
