A spectacular view from the lookout that has a telescope provided for the public. We were lucky enough to see whales but unfortunately no dolphins. I would like to see a plaque telling why it is named 'Lambert'.

Told by locals that Dolphins can be seen from here, but we were lucky enough to see two Whales on our visit, limited parking at the top, but spectacular views and well worth the visit.

Took our lunch to the lookout and enjoyed the incredible view of the Coral Sea. It’s windy most of the time there.

This lookout is well constructed and has an excellent covered viewpoint that allows a great view of the beach and ocean.

The view at lamberts beach lookout is great. Beautiful beach and fun to explore afterwards too. Plenty of parking

It's a little drive - about 15 minutes - from the Mackay CBD, but worth doing so, and has views in all directions.

Newly renovated and a great spot to look for whales, dolphins and turtles. Beautiful view of Lamberts beach and the islands on a clear day.

You can drive right to the top to see the views on the east coast of Mackay. To the right looking over the ports and to the left out to the islands.

This is the place to head during whale watching season. Excellent to see them heading up the coast. Fabulous views. Can be windy.
