An incredible lookout on the way to Binna Burra with views across the mountain ranges that border Queensland and New South Wales.
This heavily trafficked location is found on Beechmont Road, in Beechmont, about 10 kilometres from Binna Burra.
The lookout, situated in the Rosins Lookout Conservation Park, cannot be missed, sitting literally on the roadside.
It is a popular place for taking in the views or stopping for a coffee from the café across the road on the way through.
The grassy hill offers breathtaking views of the mountain ranges along the Queensland and New South Wales border including Springbrook Plateau, Ships Stern Range and Wollumbin (Mount Warning).
Views also extend across the valley below to the Gold Coast skyline.
The park beside the lookout features public toilets, a barbeque, and shaded picnic tables.
The lookout is a particularly popular spot for watching the sunrise and sunset, as well as hang-gliders and paragliders.
Track: There is no track here – the lookout is located at the car park.
Difficulty: A very accessible lookout, suitable for all fitness levels. Care should be taken on the grassy hill though as it is quite steep.
Direction: This is an out-and-back walk that returns the way it came.
The lookout is located on Beechmont Road, in Beechmont, about 10 kilometres from Binna Burra, 1.5 hours drive south of Brisbane.
The car park is quite small and becomes particularly busy throughout the day on weekends.
