Lakeview Park & Lookout

0 out of 5 stars (based on 0 reviews)

View from Lakeview Park and Lookout on the outskirts of Esk. Views are meant to be over Wivenhoe Dam, however trees have grown to mostly obscure the views.

On the outskirts of Esk is Lakeview Park & Lookout, opened in 1984. The lookout is meant to offer views through to Wivenhoe Dam and beyond.

After nearly 35 years the trees have grown to obscure the views so there aren’t much of the views that can be seen through the trees.

The park itself has some sheltered picnic tables with bins, and plenty of grass space to throw out a rug. A lookout platform is at one end of the park where the views are to be had. There are no toilets which makes it less attractive for a picnic stop.

If you want to have a picnic lunch away from the town and don’t mind the lack of toilets, then Lakeview Park is OK. The park in town near the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Brown Sign link offers better facilities for a picnic stop with toilets and free BBQs, and a short walk to the town shops.
