The little walk and view from this lookout is very beautiful! You can see out over the entire peninsula, and up into Brisbane Waters National Park. Only thing that the couple needs to improve is the placement of bins.

This is a great short walk from the water tower to the main lookout, but there are a couple of smaller places to venture to look over pearl beach as well. The site is also an attraction for Geocachers and Ingressors, if you know what...More

Mount Ettalong Lookout has amazing tranquil views of the water and surrounding landscape. It is a great place to get away from the urban jungle and take in a piece of nature’s beauty.

Nice place to visit and watch the ferries crossing the bay and is easily assessable by car and can walk a short track to get there.
