Murchison Gap Lookout

Natural Attractions

Named after John Murchison an original squatter of one of the three original squatting runs in the district, this lookout sits right on the boundary of the Murrindindi region. A great platform juts out from the side of the hill here and it is a killer sunrise spot with the sun coming up behind the hills beyond. This area is known as the ‘Valley of a Thousand Hills’ and if you catch it in the right light with overlapping silhouettes you will see why.

There are seats on the viewing platform and under the trees is a shaded table and seat. It’s the perfect spot for not only spectacular photo opportunities but also a picnic with an epic view.
