A stunning lookout with views over farmland, the Condamine River headwaters, south-east Queensland’s tallest peak – Mount Superbus – and the prominent Spicer’s Peak.

This moderately trafficked location starts at a small car park off of Spring Creek Road in The Falls.

A short stroll down a wooden boardwalk brings you to a lookout with uninterrupted views over farmland and the head waters of the Condamine River, which runs into the Murray-Darling river system.

Views also include south-east Queensland’s tallest peak – Mount Superbus – the site of the Lincoln plane crash of 1955, the wreckage of which is still there. Spicer’s Peak is also a prominent peak seen from the lookout.

This lookout is great when paired with other activities in the area, including Queen Mary Falls, Daggs Falls lookout and Browns Falls. These collectively are known as the ‘Falls Drive’.

Track: A wooden boardwalk and well-signed, the walk is easy to follow.

Difficulty: The track is suitable for all fitness levels, including those in wheelchairs.

Direction: This is an out-and-back track that returns the way it came.
