  • From McCarthy's Lookout you have a great view of the Glass House Mountains. Unfortunately, the visibility was severely limited due to the bad weather at the time of our visit.

  • It's one of queensland's most bizarre attractions, overlooking The Glass House Mountains. It is on the outskirts of The Town of Marlene, on the corner of Mountain View Road. There is a roofed observation room and guidance to provide you with the name of each mountain and historical and geographical information. However, the scenery that can be seen has become dissatisfied because the trees at the foot grow. Especially, the bush of the right side is an eyesore. From here, about 100 meters west of the houses, you can see the mountains better. You can also see even more wonderful sights from the nearby private Botanical Gardens. However, there is a fee here.

  • Lovely view! The parking also offers multiple carparks so you, your friends and family can all park together. The map gives you a beautiful painting that offers you the names of mountains you can see.
  • Wonderful lookout + bins and table and map of glass house mountains. Make sure you go to the botanical gardens around the corner and pat a parrot.
