The best time to visit is from June to November, as this is when you have better chances of spotting whales. Dolphins and turtles can also be seen from the lookout, even during other times of the year. The sparkling waters are also a magnificent colour, especially when one can appreciate the contrast between the black rock and the sea’s spectacular hues.

To make the most out of your visit to the Noosa National Park, a 400-hectare area encompassing areas of Lake Weyba, Peregian, and Coolum, set a day aside to explore via a scenic walk. It will already take you to all the best sights Noosa has to offer.

The walk is 10km long and will take 3-4 hours though it’s always recommended to start in the early morning. Major highlights include the Granite, Tea Tree, and Alexandria Bays. The magnificent pandanus trees, Hell’s Gate, and Devil’s Kitchen are top attractions here too.

After visiting the Dolphin Point Lookout, make your way to Granite Bay. Wear comfortable hiking shoes so that you can safely make the track that increases in elevation up the coast. The higher you get, the more breathtaking the views become. Most of the walk takes you beneath the canopy, though it can get hot so be sure to bring sunscreen and water.

If you’re keen to explore other destinations in the Sunshine Coast that are famous for awe-inspiring animal encounters, check out Point Arkwright, Point Perry Lookout, and Point Cartwright; all are known for whale sightings.

Be sure to put Dolphin Point Lookout in your itinerary for an unforgettable time.
