motorcycles, travel, friendship, respect… I may drift off into WTF-land at times so hang in there.

Kamarun Lookout.


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.

Kamarun Lookout – Parking Area

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.

  2. Finding vistas like that is what back roads is all about.

  3. It’s funny. I’ve seen your cover photo on the top of each page, and I’m always left to wondering why you’re taking the turn so wide on a blind curve. Then it dawned on me today, not the same side of the road, mate.

  4. Beautiful views of the mountains.

    I like the photo with your helmet, looks like it is photo-bombing your pic.

    Beautiful views. I like that decal on the back of your helmet: phone + car = Death. Wonder if I can get that on-line?

    • Yeah, I love views like that Bob.

      The stickers will be available shortly through me (my design). That one was a prototype. Tee shirts are also available through Tee Spring, so far only the red ones have gone into print as I need a minimum of 10 to get them going.

      Thanks for stopping by.
