Governors Chair Lookout

Aratula, Scenic Rim Area

At the crest of Spicers Gap (in Main Range National Park) a short 150 metre walk leads from the carpark to a lookout over the Fassifern Valley.

Governors Chair, the large rock on the edge of the cliff face, was so named as it was reportedly a popular resting spot for early governors of Queensland when their journeys took them through Spicers Gap - the original route linking the Warwick and Moreton Bay districts. Care must be taken at the cliff edge.
