A short walk leads to the lookout at the top of sandstone cliffs. The lookout offers views over hoop pine plantations and mature rainforest with emergent hoop pines. Beyond the plantations, Glastonbury Creek can be seen winding through grazing country.
Also a good place for some rock climbing and abseiling, if you're into that, or just watch the fun.

Getting there:

The Brooyar State Forest map page from the link below shows three access points. From the south turning off the Gympie Woolooga Road onto Diggins Road that becomes Greendale Road and signposted left just beyond the Glastonbury Creek Camping Area.

From the north off the Wide Bay Highway onto Petersen Road or further along onto Reid Road, again signposted at the junctions.

All these roads are unsealed and can be driven by 2WD vehicles, but a 4WD is recommended. A small car park is located at the start of the lookout track.

Route/Trail notes:

From the car park a well marked track leads out to the lookout platform.

A track also leads off from the left of the lookout to the bottom of the cliff. This is the access route for the climbing Crag. Please be respectful of the climbers and don't attempt to climb without the proper equipment and training.

This was less about the walk and more about the abseiling, although the view from the lookout is expansive.

It's a short walk... but a nice enough lookout.

250 degree view at look out, to good a reward for such a short walk :).

Good rock face for a first time climber. Pretty good view at the lookout, very easy and short walk.

Not sure it counts as a bush walk, but it was listed so why not. Climbing access, views are ok.
