It was sad to see Shute Harbour so run down and damaged after Cyclone Debbie. The lookout was still great. Hopefully it can be restored. We take a drive down and visit each time we’re in Airlie. It’s a great area.

Not much to see here at the moment...most areas are fenced off, due to cyclone damage. Lookout views are nice. Potential to be great in the years to come, or even when the water is clearer.

Great place to go and look out over Shute Harbour. Really hope they bring this place back after Cyclone Debbie.

Great view from the lookout point but not much else there because it was devastated by last year’s storm. Worth a drive round the area though, just to be amazed by the fabulous houses!

There is not a whole lot to do actually. Have a coffee or go for a walk on the beach board walk which follows the beach line. There are lots of little Cafes on the walk. Enjoy😀
