About 26 km (16 miles) along the Lamington National Park Road, just past the Mountview Alpaca Farm at Cainbable, there’s a turn off on your left called Kamarun Lookout Road which leads to a place called, wait for it, Kamarun Lookout.
Who’d thunk it?
The land for the lookout was donated to the people of South East Queensland by Romeo Lahey, the same man who eventually succeeded in having the McPherson Range and surrounding area proclaimed a national park.
This is the type of place that is easy to miss if you don’t pay attention to the little sign posts along the way. As it happened, I did miss the little sign post and had to do a U-turn a little ways past the turn off to double back.
The road up to the lookout from the main road is only about 1/2 a click long, it’s sealed, but rough. It loops around on it’s self in a sort of cul-de-sac, and offers a small parking area and a Gazebo where you can sit and enjoy the views while you have a break from the drive up form Canungra.
I’m glad I stopped at Kamarun Lookout, the panoramic views over the surrounding area are breathtaking. They are so good in fact, I’d like to share them with you.
