The Lookdown lookout

Natural Attractions

The word lookdown’ sounds quaint and old-fashioned because its origins are in the late 1800s, back when ladies wore layers of petticoats and gentlemen their three-piece suits for a day out in the bush.

The Lookdown lookout is perched on the edge of the plateau above the Bungonia Slot Canyon. It’s an easy 50m stroll from the carpark to this breathtaking view into Bungonia Creek Gorge and across to Ettrema Wilderness area in Morton National Park.

Spectacular grass trees grow in this area and throughout the park. Their growth rate is around 1cm each year. How many can you spot near the lookdown that were already growing here before the park was first protected as a water reserve in 1872?
