Sunshine Coast Lookouts

The Sunshine Coast is fortunate enough to have fantastic scenery wherever you look, from the beautiful lush hinterland to the endless stretches of majestic coastline and everywhere in-between.  

The Sunshine Coast is the perfect place to take the time to stop and appreciate the wonders of nature and the beautiful surroundings that make up the Sunshine Coast.  Here are some of the best places on the coast to take time out to take in the view and don’t forget your camera.

Mt Tinbeerwah Lookout is situated about a 10 minute drive from Tewantin and then a short walk along a designated path.  The panoramic views are 360 degrees covering the Noosa River, the coastline,  Noosa Hinterland and the Glasshouse Mountains as well as Lake Cooroibah  and Lake Catharaba.

Laguna Lookout is at the top of Noosa Hill and a relatively short walk from Hastings St. The view takes in parts of the Noosa River and Teewah Beach as well as views over the top of Hastings St.

Point Arkwright Lookout provides spectacular views of the coast and also allows you to watch the surfers up close that frequent the beaches surrounding the lookout as well as spot whales migrating up or down the coast.

Point Perry in Coolum gives a different perspective than from the lookout on the beach and is a 5 minute drive from the centre of Coolum.

Gerrard’s Lookout at Montville has some of the best views of the coast

Crawford or Foster Lookout – Both are located on Maleny-Montville Rd and both provide brilliant views of the coast on a clear day.

Howells Knob Lookout – Is located at Reesville just west of Maleny on the Blackall Range Tourist Drive and offers panoramic 360 degree views.
