Getting to this drive up Yarrahappinni Mountain can be done a few ways. A good one is off the Scotts Head road, about half way. Turn off to enjoy some off road type driving over babbling brooks, sub tropical rainforest and a picnic area that is like a green cathedral. You will probably meet the resident goannas. Continue up the mountain for great views all around the region. It's worth the effort and a very enjoyable picnic option.

Be prepared and take the right road up from the Highway, worth it but a very narrow road. I took my i30 and it managed it well. no need for a 4 wheel drive. The view from the lookout was great. Worth taking a picnic if you wanted or a cuppa. Lovely and peacful

We have a 4 wheel drive and traversed the road up the mountain easily. It is achievable with a regular car, but not for the faint-hearted. What a wonderful eco-system. Not to be missed!

The views are spectacular. My husband enjoyed the whole area as he loves to be off road and get away from out it all. A wonderful place to seed the larger picture the weather was excellent.

The Yarrahapinni Lookout is somewhat marred by all the mobile phone towers and repeater stations installed on the summit. Of course that's because it's the highest point around and as such offers some decent panoramic views. If you're just out for a leisurely exploratory drive take some food and drink so you can enjoys a pleasant rest in "The Pines" picnic area whilst driving around the rainforest and pine forested areas you'll find around the base of Mount Yarrahapinni.
