McCarthy's Lookout reviews
Good views towards the Glass House mountains but in my view second to the Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World, top gazebos. more »
Ok for a quick stop to look at the mountains & landscape. View is partially obscured by a house and large tree if you were hoping for a good panaroma shot. Preferred other look outs in the area more »
Excellent viewpoint of the Sunshine Coast and Glasshouse Mountains. Has a very nice rotunda with seats. What more can I say... more »
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.
Nice spot to view all the Glass House Mountains. There's a covered seating area for a cup of tea (bring your own) and a quaint painted guide to the objects in the view.
This site complements the Mary Cairncross Reserve further down the road; both are worth visiting when exploring Maleny. There is a small carpark & shelter. We used one of two small corner tables for a picnic overlooking the Glass House Mountains to the south-east. Nil toilet facilities here though.
An excellent place to view the glass house mountains
