Cunningham’s Crest Lookout

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.

For directions, drive south into Laidley on Laidley-Plainland Road, turning left onto Railway Street immediately before crossing the railway line. 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. From here, follow the lookout signs to reach the gravel carpark.  

Schultz Lookout

Schultz Lookout is situated in the beautiful Blenheim Hills area and boasts views of rich agricultural farmlands. Facilities include a shelter shed and picnic table.
For directions, drive through Patrick Street, Laidley and turn right onto Mulgowie Road at the T-intersection. From Mulgowie Road, turn right onto Blenheim Road and left onto Schultz Lookout Road.
