Flat Rock lookout has a tricky name. There’s nothing flat about the 500m drop, though the sheer sides of the escarpment offer some of the most scenic views in the region. This beautiful rock formation is the remnant of a vast volcano that once dominated Comboyne Plateau to the west.

A small fenced viewing platform opens out over sweeping plains. On clear days, the Coxcomb, Goonook and Killabakh nature reserves are visible far into the distance, laid out like a green and yellow patchwork of dense blackbutt forests and grassy fields. Be sure to bring binoculars and a camera too – birds of prey are known to nest in the cliffs, with peregrine falcons and wedge-tailed eagles sometimes circling overhead, making this a great spot for birdwatching.

To extend a visit, take advantage of the nearby tables and turn Flat Rock lookout into a dramatic place to picnic, perhaps using the view to mull the rest of your day and the natural bounty of Coorabakh National Park.

Another good lookout. High above the valley floor. Road a little tough on the car but glad we made the effort. Short and easy walk from carpark.
