For sweeping vistas to the south, you can’t go past Richardson lookout in Morton National Park. Located on West Rim walking track, you’ll have full view of Fitzroy Falls, Yarrunga Creek and Yarrunga Valley.

Close to Redhills fire trail on West Rim walking track, Richardson lookout is well worth a stop for spectacular views of Fitzroy Falls. Watch the falls cascade into the valley below as you take in the expansive sight of Yarrunga Valley and Yarrunga Creek laid out before you.

With sandstone cliffs that contrast against the surrounding eucalypt forests and rainforest gullies, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to capture the perfect photograph.
