Somerset Lookout is within the D'Aguilar National Park and can be accessed either by walking track or 4wd. The Grade 4 walking track begins at The Gantry, is well marked and winds through lush rainforest, scribbly gum forest, montane heath and piccabeen palm groves for 13kms. A good supply of drinking water is recommended. The track can take up to four hours to complete with plenty to see along the way.

Stop at Somerset Lookout halfway along the track and take in magnificent vistas stretching west to Somerset Dam and Lake Wivenhoe—unquestionably the park's best view.

The Western Escapement forest drive also gives you access to Somerset Lookout. The 14km loop begins at The Gantry and it is recommended to take the drive in dry conditions only.
