Information

Situated between Boulia and Winton in central Queensland. The landscape viewed from the Lookout is composed of flat-topped hills or mesas. These formations are said to be unique in Australia and South America is the only other place, in the world, where they are found. The Boulia Shire Council has constructed a picnic shelter on the Lookout and a parking area at the bottom of the hill. A short, vigorous walk takes you from the parking area to the Lookout.

The mesas are the remains of plateau country that resisted erosion from an inland sea 90 – 100 million years ago. The area is known as the Lilleyvale (sometimes spelt Lilyvale) Hills.
Fantastic place - definitely worth a visit - view from the hill behind lookout is spectacular.
