Murchison Gap Lookout
Named after John Murchison an original squatter of one of the three original squatting runs in the district, this lookout sits right on the boundary of the Murrindindi region. A great platform juts out from the side of the hill here and it is a killer sunrise spot with the sun coming up behind the hills beyond. This area is known as the 'Valley of a Thousand Hills' and if you catch it in the right light with overlapping silhouettes you will see why.
There are seats on the viewing platform and under the trees is a shaded table and seat. It's the perfect spot for not only spectacular photo opportunities but also a picnic with an epic view.
Tag it on to the end of a long day spent chasing waterfalls, hiking in Mt Disappointment and exploring nearby townships; or catch the sunrise at the beginning of a big day visiting the region. Definitely one not to be missed!
You can find this stunning vantage point by turning off Flowerdale Road or Broadford-Wandong Rd onto Murchison Spur Road.
