Cunningham's Crest Lookout

Location: 50 Mountain Road, Laidley Qld 4341, Australia
Phone: 0754663426

Cunningham's Crest Lookout is situated on the knoll where explorer Allan Cunningham and his party crossed in 1829. It was on this spot that he stood and named the plains below, 'Laidley Plains'. Visitors today are rewarded with panoramic views of the township, framed by a mountain backdrop. The lookout features murals, poetry, sculptures and mosaics that celebrate the European and Aboriginal history of the site and reflect on Laidley's early pioneering men and women.

Follow Railway Street to the end, turn left into Summers Street and right into Paroz Road. Follow this up Buhse’s Hill, turning right onto Mountain Road at the intersection.
