Mount Alexandra Lookout, or Walu Wugirriga, pronounced wah-lu-oo-gid-ee-gah, means ‘look about’. A stunning highlight of the Great Barrier Reef Drive, the lookout lives up to its name and boasts breathtaking views of the Daintree coast, including the Daintree River, Snapper Island, Lows Isles, Port Douglas and beyond. On a clear day, you can see to Double Island near Palm Cove. The Daintree and surrounding regions are rich in cultural significance and history for the traditional owners of the land, the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people. While admiring the sensational rainforest-meets-reef view, visitors can catch a glimpse of the brilliant blue of the Ulysses butterfly fluttering through the rainforest, as well as the Pied-Imperial Pigeon flying to and from Low Isles each day. Alexandra Lookout is located 10 minutes north of the Daintree River, with signage to the north and south. There is a carpark and the lookout is wheelchair accessible.
