Set midway along West Rim walking track in Morton National Park, Paines lookout is a picturesque spot to take in the dramatic cliffs that surround Yarrunga Valley.

See the lush rainforest canopy stretch out before you and try to spot the local birdlife that make their home in the sub-tropical rainforest. You’ll have sweeping views of the gorge and valley as you gaze out towards the horizon.
