Best Lookouts

To get views off the mountain, you need to travel to the edges of Tamborine Mountain as the mountain top is actually a plateau. There are a few main lookouts you can easily access, as well as lookouts which are found in the National Parks.


Hang Gliders ‘Rotary Lookout’ and the famous Hang Gliders launching site are both situated on Main Western Road, Tamborine Mountain, and look out towards the west.

The Beacon Lookout is situated at the end of Beacon Road, looking towards the west and out to Brisbane – there is limited parking here.

Some of the bushwalking tracks also have lookout points – such as The Knoll National Park (which looks out towards Brisbane) and Witches Falls National Park.
