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...

Stop at McCarthy's Lookout. You just should.

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.

Amazing views

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.

After a beautiful drive up the range we got to the lookout. It was a breathtaking view and you could see clearly all the peaks. We could have stayed there all day just watching the landscape

We were not aware of the view that suddenly appeared, we could have stood all day just gazing out at the wonderful scene, worth driving just to see this.
