Sherwood lookout

Toonumbar National Park

Affected by closures, check current alerts 


Pack a picnic and spend some time at Sherwood lookout at Toonumbar National Park, Sherwood Ranges, with scenic views of an old volcano.

What to
Drinking water, hat, sunscreen
Please note
  • The weather in this area can be extreme and unpredictable, so please ensure you’re well-prepared for your visit.
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

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.
