High cliffs in the coastal headland reserve provide spectacular views of Mooloolaba, the Mooloolah River mouth, Mount Coolum to the north and Kawana Beach to the south. It’s often possible to spot migratory humpback whales and turtles as well as ships entering and leaving the Port of Brisbane with the views to the east.
