McCarthy's Lookout is a great place to stop if you want picture postcard views of the Glasshouse Mountains be it a sunny or cloudy day.
Take your camera.

The views out to the glass house mountains are spectacular, we were staying in Maleny so did not have to make a special trip to take in the views. but having said that it would be worth a trip, The sunshine coast hinterland is beautiful and there is plenty of other things to see while you are here. I think the road is part of the Blackall range tourist drive, but if not there are plenty of scenic drives in the area.

Yes, another spot in the Maleny area where you can get great views of the Glass House Mountains & surrounding countryside. Recommended 'don't miss it' for anyone visiting the area, and it's right there on the side of the road, all for free! We take all our interstate & overseas visitors up there from Brisbane for a day's outing.

Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, mountains through to the Coral sea. Looking out over Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Mount Coolum and talking to other people enjoying the view was a lovely stopover for 1/2 an hour. Picnic tables are available for a picnic lunch and it is not a steep walk so everyone can enjoy this beautiful view

Discovered this lookout by chance. Rewarded with a glorious sunset as storm clouds rolled in from coastline.

After a beautiful drive up the range we got to the lookout. It was a breathtaking view and you could see clearly all the peaks. We could have stayed there all day just watching the landscape

We were not aware of the view that suddenly appeared, we could have stood all day just gazing out at the wonderful scene, worth driving just to see this.
