Reached after a very enjoyable 30 minute hike starting at the “Knoll Road” lookout, this viewing platform allows views inland as well as on to “Cameron Falls”.
Past the famous “TM Distillery” right at the very end of “Beacon Road”, this is a less frequented lookout point with a small turning circle and limited parking.
Forming part of the “Witches Chase” hiking track, this viewing platform is best reached via a 25 minutes walk from the “Main Western Road” car parking area opposite “Hartley Road”.

Views to the Gold Coast…
Take great care when navigating the steep and narrow road, there is no room for parking on the street itself, visitors can enjoy the views after a short stroll uphill after parking where the road turns into “Justin Avenue”

Again care needs to be taken when stopping to admire the views, a short walk from where cars can be parked will be necessary.
Being located on one of the busiest roads to Tamborine Mountain, this vantage point tends to cause traffic problems. Please park well off the road, and consider resident’s privacy.
