The lookout is elevated from the rest of the city so it affords panoramic views of Gladstone port, islands and city. The cafe at the top was popular and had a good variety of offerings. Definitely a must do if you are visiting Gladstone.

Great place to look back over the harbour. First thing to catch you eye is the red bouganville growing down the back, cast your eye further to watch the boats coming and going on the harbour.

Google has named this Lookout as "William Golding Memorial Lookout" and the views are great of the harbour and the port area. The cafe is closed but other cafes are close by in town. Great Lookout for the harbour.

Perfect spot to park and have a delicious brekky, then head down the steps near the waterfall to check out the marina. Unfortunately the HMAS Gladstone wasn't doing tours but it was still a lovely walk around. The view from the Lookout are incredible!

Nice setting next to Victoria Park and gives visitors a chance to orient themselves before branching out. Close to the CBD.
