  • Awesome location made more special by Matty the Coffee Van Owner. LOOKOUT Clean and well presented with views out to the coast. PADLOCKS There are paddlocks along the fence. Apparently, since the location has spiritual Aboringinal significance, it is believed if you make a wish and lock a paddock on the wire fence it will come true. COFFEE Delicious coffee Sensational hot chocolate Amazing friendly service
  • The view here was good, but the parking was very limited and access to the lookout difficult with small stairs to it. Upon leaving the lookout, I fell over on the stairs causing a bad cut and graze, which would not have happened if each stair was longer / more stable. I was disappointed on my experience here but the view is worth it (as long as you don’t fall down the stairs)
  • Gerrard's Lookout is only a short drive from Montville, and offers great views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. There is a picnic area and tables as well to help you enjoy the view.
  • Very nice and lovely place to enjoy a spectacular view to see few mountains. The drive to the lookout through the hinterlands is extremely joyful and you just keep on saying OMG. Highly recommended.
  • Great view over the ocean. Awesome spot to watch a thunderstorm, just watch it isn't too windy when it rains or you might get wet!
