Worth the climb for the amazing views at the top. Make it a circular trip, starting from the Courthouse & ending up on Four Mile beach.

This is a must see. From this lookout you can get a magnificent view of Four Mile beach. But go there on a sunny day, worth the effort.

Great view of 4 Mile Beach. Access is via Murphy Street which is a steep incline...best to drive up unless you are fit. Best time is afternoons as view can be a little hazy in the mornings.

As title says, it was a fun little 20 minute hike up the hill, but the view takes the cake. You get to see almost entirety of four mile beach, and can also hike down to the beach from here.

You can either walk up the path from the beach or drive ! Depends on your knees I suppose ? A good outlook with a couple of history info around and a great view up 4 Mile Beach, worth the stop !

Great place to view Four Mile Beach in all it's glory. Get some history of Port Douglas at the same time. A nice place to start the Port Douglas experience.

There is a car park next to the lookout. It is quite a long, steep climb if you decide to walk there.

You can walk up the road which has a steady but easily done incline to the lookout. '
