This is a great spot to have a picnic or bbq or just to enjoy the view. Be warned - it’s a popular spot and can get very crowded. Bit of history about the HMAS Brisbane.

Looks really nice & is always kept very well maintained. Nice and interesting to view & read about the history. Once you are finished here you can sit & relax to take in the stunning views of the Sunshine Coast.

Yes, it is a lookout, but it's a great place for picnics and barbques. Lots of space to spread out and I've never had a hard time finding a parking spot there. A great place to get out into nature and enjoy this lovely coastline.

A popular place to stop and take in the view of the beach. Enjoy watching the parasailing and the many walkers along the coast.

THE LOOKOUT IS JUST OKAY, BUT IF COMBINED WITH THINGS ALONG THE WAY FROM LANDING, MAKES FOR A GOOD MINIMAL-EXPENSE TIME ON THE MOOLOLABA SHORE. Here’s the thing – HMAS BRISBANE LOOKOUT is nothing to get excited about from a viewpoint point of view (um,...More

A group of us visit the memorial on a regular weekly walk and always stop for brief of the beautiful Mooloolaba and Alexander coast line and there is always something to see. Very well done.

It's a lookout. Directly in line with the final resting place of the HMAS Brisbane. But other than an information plaque, there is a view of the ocean. It is situated on the beach front overlooking the beach on the pathway to Mooloolaba.
