Had a bit of trouble finding this due to dodgy GPS coordinates. So follow the road instead and you wont miss it. Nice views but nothing outstanding

On a clear day, you can see for miles; including the sights around Townsville. Just up the track there is a heritage homestead where you can sample high tea and other sumptuous fair.

If heading up or down the range this lookout is an easy stop. Beautiful views out over the valley to the ocean and is just stunning if the region has had a bit of rain.
