Access by car, walk, or access from the beach walkway. Early town councils set rules, No buildings higher than a palm tree - so the views are unspoiled and beautiful.

This is a very easy hike up to the overlook. We chose to hike up from the park and then walk back down through the city. Beautiful views and a nice bit of easy exercise.

We went here by accident and were pleasantly surprised! So beautiful even when it was getting dark outside.

Some of the path had been closed due to recent rock fall, but the views from the top were wonderful. my calves were screaming by the time we hit the main street on the other side, but it was worth it.

It was a lovely lookout but i just felt there could have been a bit more information on what one was looking at and the history of the place.

Tad windy up there but an easy walk with multiple look out points of four mile beach and surrounds. Good photo opportunities

We walked up here this morning and were rewarded with great views of the Four Mile beach and surrounding areas of Port Douglas. Well worth a 10 minute stop when in the Port Douglas vicinity.

You can walk up the road which has a steady but easily done incline to the lookout. '
