Point Cartwright Reserve overlooks the mouth of the Mooloolah River and has some of the most spectacular views of the Sunshine Coast. The 5 hectares of open space and natural bushland is a great and popular location for picnics and gathering such as weddings. 

The reserve is home to an active lighthouse at the eastern tip. 

There are two public amenities at the car park and 250 metres west of the water tower. You'll discover a variety of vegetation types on the exposed rocky headland that thrive in the high wind and salt exposed environment.

The viewing platform at Point Cartwright Reserve car park (beach access point 199) is a popular spot to check the surf, take your morning coffee, watch the late afternoon summer storms or to unwind after walking a circuit of the reserve. 

There is a free car park with public amenities close by. From here you can walk up the approximately 230m pedestrian pathway up to the Lighthouse and open grass areas. There are large open grass areas for picnics and gatherings. This location is most popular for weddings.
