Gus Beutel Lookout

I took the family to Gus Beutel Lookout on the weekend.

It’s a breathtaking spot on the edge of the Great Dividing Range between Hampton and Esk. On our way home from Toowoomba, we decided to take the scenic route rather than battle all the roadworks on the Warrego Highway.

I’ve ridden the bike up here a couple of times, and really enjoyed being able to share it with Liz and the kids.

We all gaped and took lots of photos.

Capturing the View

What’s unusual is that even though the view is so huge – it’s eerily silent. It seems strange to have such an expansive outlook on the world, and at the same time to enjoy it in such peace.
