Information

Grigsons Lookout is approx 6 kms north of Jurien Bay on the Indian Ocean Drive in Mt Lesueur National Park. It offers excellent views over the chain of coastal lakes stretching from just north of the Coolimba area to just north of Jurien. These lakes are usually dry in summer but some have perennial seepages, particularly on their eastern margins as at Lake Leeman.

The name celebrates John Grigson. Settlement in the district viewed to the east dates from the 1850s when Walter Padbury took up land. His nephew John Grigson managed the property immediately to the east of the Lookout, and with the successful development of sheep grazing in the area generally, a jetty for the embarkment of same was constructed at Jurien Bay in 1885.
