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.

Great spot. Excellent view from the lookout and surprise views from the not very well signed but very easy to follow walking path that goes around the lookout area, which is a bit steep at one end. No water or other facilities

Lovely lookout over Stanthorpe area. Small area with limited parking and there are two fixed viewing binoculars. Bush setting.

In September 2021 my wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant one week stay in the Granite Belt region of Queensland staying in the delightful Fergies Hill Spa Cottage located in the Granite Ridge Winery at Ballandean, very near to the Queensland/New South Wales border on the Queensland side.

Our plan for this one week stay was to visit lots of Granite Belt wineries and enjoy the many tourist attractions in the area.

Ballandean is 20 kilometres south, south west of Stanthorpe (the main town in the Granite Belt) and is 240 kilometres south –west of Brisbane, about a 3 hour’s drive away.

On our first full day after we arrived at the Cottage, we took a drive into Stanthorpe to get some meat and grocery items to cook meals ourselves in the Cottage, which is fully self contained. Before doing our shopping we took a short 5 minute drive up to the Mount Marley Lookout from the town centre, where we were able to get some fabulous panoramic views of the town of Stanthorpe.

There is a fenced off area at the top of the summit with two large highly magnified binoculars provided, which were free of charge to let visitors pinpoint certain landmarks more easily. There were picnic tables with seating and visitors can enjoy a short walk around the summit, which follows a narrow concreted path through the trees. This walk is very scenic.

There were quite a number of visitors up on the summit when we visited, which demonstrated the Lookout’s popularity.

This is a must do for visitors to Stanthorpe to get a different perspective of this charming, enterprising town.

We drove up to Mount Marley to take look over the town of Stanthorpe and the surrounding area.
The views are great. There are also some seats and picnic tables. We found a walk which started from the car park. It was lovely and went round the hill to the Eastern side. An easy walk on a concrete path. We also found that there were a few other walks which came up the mountain from the base.
Would be a great spot to visit for sunset.

Great views of Stanthorpe from the lookout Point. There is a direction compass with points of interest and two fixed telescopes that do not require money to use.

This is just another lookout. Nothing spectacular. It only looks out over one direction as but a nice view. There are some walk trails around but it was overgrown with grass which didn't make it very inviting for us.

Easy drive up to the lookout and a perfect vantage point to watch the sunset. Picnic tables up there also.

Before heading back to our accommodation, we decided to check out the Mount Marley Lookout. The lookout was nice and there were free binoculars at the top. These worked pretty well and Noel creeped on some backyard family BBQ because they had a cute dog. There is also a summit walk you can do up the top of the mountain and a couple of picnic tables if you want to have some food up here. I think it would be a great sunset spot.
