Located approximately 40 minutes drive from Longreach, Starlight’s Lookout can be accessed from unsealed Muttaburra-Westside Road.
Camped on this very rise and surrounded by 1,000 head of stolen cattle, a handful of the outback’s most wanted cattle thieves sit huddled around their swags. The infamous Captain Starlight and his men gathered together 1,000 stolen cattle on a lonely Jumpup (Mesa), north-east of Longreach.
Today you can experience the legend of Starlight and the wonder of Jumpup Country by climbing Starlight’s Lookout. Be rewarded with fantastic views and sensational sunset photo opportunities.
