Lamberts Lookout

Mackay, Mackay Area

Free Entry

Overlooking Lamberts Beach, the Cumberland Islands and Slade Point; Lamberts lookout offers stunning views especially at sunset. This is also a popular viewing platform to see the migrating whales as they breach and play off the coast of Mackay.

This beautiful location is also one of the few places in Mackay you can watch both a sunrise and a sunset, and is a popular location for wedding photography. The lookout also provides views toward a rustic old water tower which has been painted in a marine whale theme.

In 2017 the lookout was upgraded to include features such as a landmark pavilion and two dedicated viewing areas with seating and interpretative signage. The upper level provides unspoiled 360 degree views and is equipped with binoculars for whale watching and other wildlife spotting.

Onsite parking has also been improved with provision made for small tourist buses and RV campervans and there is now a disabled parking bay.

Shaded areas, picnic tables, play equipment and barbecues are all available at Ram Chandra Park beside Lamberts Beach.

Lamberts Beach, Lamberts Lookout and Ram Chandra Park can all be found on Pacific Esplanade, Slade Point.
