Best of All Lookout

Gold Coast

True to its name, the Best of All Lookout offers phenomenal views from the southern edge of the Springbrook Plateau to the lowlands below. The 300m trail from the car park to the lookout takes you past a clump of gnarled, and incredibly rare, Antarctic beech trees: you’ll only find them around this Scenic Rim region.
