I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

It's easy to appreciate the beauty of Noosa from the ground, but if you get a look at the place from above, you'll see it's just as pretty. A great place to do so is Laguna Lookout, which is located at the end of Viewland Drive at the top of Noosa Hill.

From Laguna Lookout you can see across the town of Noosa, the neighbouring bay and out to some of the volcanic plugs of the Glasshouse Mountains that are located to the west and north of the site. A dial has been erected to help you determine which mountain is which and there's so many to see that you really need to get down on eye level with it to be certain what you're looking at.

My challenge was to find Mt Cooroora, which I had climbed a few days before, and see how tall it looked

The lookout is based on a large concrete circle and there is a second concrete area on the site that provides an open space for kids to play tip or hopscotch (some of the rocks around the area can but substituted for chalk). There are no chairs or tables to sit down for a snack or lunch but there is a grassy slope next to the lookout if you're determined to have a picnic.

If you want another view of Noosa, this time from one of the mountains you can see from Laguna Lookout, then you should head out of Noosa along the Noosa-Cooroy Road. About ten kilometres away is Tewantin State Forest, where there's a lookout on Mount Tewantin. You can't drive right up to it like you can at Laguna Lookout, but the walk is very mangeable. There's also a section that's accessible for wheelchairs and strollers and leads to good views anyway.
