Amongst our fertile lands and wide open spaces, you’ll find the most stunning landscapes. Here’s a few of our favourites spots, those that best explain why we wouldn’t trade this region for anywhere else.
The Gympie Region. You’re welcome.
ON OUR COAST
- Carlo Sandblow – the short easy walk to the Sandblow from the southern edge of town provides a wonderful moon like landscape of soft sand and wonderful views from Double Island point to K’gari Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Strait. A great spot for sunrise or sunset.
- Double Island Point Lighthouse – 4wd access only. Drive along Rainbow Beach past the Coloured Sands. From the point it is a steep 15 min walk to the lighthouse. You will be rewarded with 360o views from Noosa to K’gari Fraser Island and the coloured sands.
MOST DELIGHTFUL MARY
- Imbil Lookout – is in the centre of town. Take a left at the local grocery store to the top of the hill for almost 360o views of the Mary Valley.
- Arrawatta Lookout – on Traveston Crossing Rd, offers views looking north and north-east of the Mary Valley.
- Amamoor Lookout – is through Amamoor township and over the bridge. Take the next right on the Amamoor-Dagun Rd and the lookout on your right overlooks the valley.
A HOP AND SKIP FROM GYMPIE CITY
- Salmon Lookout – turn off Gympie Kin Kin Pomona Rd onto Ryans Rd before a quick turn onto Wolvi Mountain Rd. You will pass through a cattle yard with a gate, please close the gate as you enter and exit.
- Point Pure Lookout (Brooyar State Forest) – Brooyar State Forest is approximately twenty minutes North West of Gympie, take the Peterson Road turn off and enter the forest. Park at the Point Pure carpark and the lookout is an easy 300m return walk. Note: the road to Point Pure lookout, is unsuitable for conventional vehicles, caravans and trailers.
GO WEST, LIFE IS PEACEFUL THERE
- Mudlo Gap Pearsons Lookout – Just 8km from Kilkivan on Mudlo Road. Pearsons Lookout is a 3km return walk from the car park, at times a steep walk requiring a moderate fitness level rewarding you with a great view.
- Boat Mountain – 15km north of Goomeri, the car park for the walk to the lookout is on Daniels Road. There are tracks ranging for 370 metres to 2.2kms. The walking trail leads you up many stairs, but once at the top, you enjoy a relatively easy walk to Daniel’s lookout, at the peak of Boat Mountain.
