Boiling Pot is all spruced up

ONE of Noosa National Park's best viewing points has reopened to the public.

The new lookout at Boiling Pot was unveiled by National Parks minister Steve Dickson on Friday.

The project cost $145,000 and included new railings, seating, retaining walls, track surfacing and drainage, and substantial below-ground steel and concrete work for engineering integrity.

Mr Dickson said the newly rebuilt viewpoint over Laguna and Tea Tree bays would enhance Noosa National Park's reputation as one of Queensland's most scenic areas.

"This upgrade has been a long time coming," Mr Dickson said.

"I congratulate our hardworking rangers for the work undertaken and thank visitors for their patience during the times when access was restricted by construction work.

"This project has ensured Boiling Pot lookout remains an excellent vantage point to watch surfers, dolphins and even the occasional whale."

"The lookout is the first opportunity along the track to enjoy the sweeping coastal views from Noosa North Shore to the surf off Tea Tree Bay," he said.
