The Sherwood lookout offers scenic views to Mount Lindesay and the McPherson Ranges and the open spot with a picnic table and barbecue facilities makes for a great time with nature.
Though a terrific find all year round, the northerly aspect of the lookout makes it a winter delight. It’s sunny and warm and on a clear day, and you can see well into the forested mountains on the Queensland border.
Whether you’re picnicking, walking, hiking or looking for a great spot to get a perfect shot of Mount Lindesay, a remnant from the Focal Peak s hield volcano, this scenic ridge is a firm favourite for those in-the-know.
