Getting there:

From Roma, head north on the Carnarvon Highway and 47km north of Injune, turn right onto Arcadia Valley Access Road and follow this for 16km. A small sign to the lookout on your right leads you to a car park and picnic area.

From the north on the Carnarvon Highway, turn left into Mulcahys Road (signposted Nuga Nuga National Park) and then right down Arcadia Valley Access Road, past the Lonesome National Park Camping Area and up the hill and to your left is the sign to the lookout and car park.

Maps:

None found.

Route/Trail notes:

From the car park, walk along the track to the lookout and shelter on your right. From here, there is no track, but you continue on along the bluff as far as you dare go.

Return by the same route.

BE AWARE, that the edges of this bluff are very unstable, as witnessed by the rock falls on the road below. STAY WELL CLEAR.

Permits/Costs:

None.

Comments

This hidden away lookout was off the grid. I had just driven down through Arcadia Valley from Nuga Nuga National Park and had to keep stopping to admire the view and I came across this unobtrusive lookout that gives you a high vantage point of the outlying area.
