Mountains. Overlooking the township of

Corryong, Embery's Lookout is accessed,

via the Murray River Road, on Ranch

Road. The marked turnoff to the lookout

is about halfway between Towong and

Tintaldra. A 30 minute cruise along Ranch

Road to the lookout will also give visitors

other magnificent scenic views of the

Corryong, Cudgewa and Murray

Valleys. Basic picnic and barbeque

facilities are provided but there are no

toilet facilities.

Mt. Mittamatite Floral

This is a kilometre or so past the

Embery's Scenic Lookout turnoff and

offers beautiful panoramic views of the

Corryong Valley and the Nariel Valley.

It is only accessible by four wheel drive or

on foot.

Scammell's Spur Lookout

This is located just off the Alpine Way,

20 km from Khancoban. Access is well

signposted and s a very easy stroll from

the car park.

Named after an Upper Murray pioneer family who once ran cattle in the area, Scammell's Lookout has a large platform area with a picture board which indicates the names and locations of the Snowy Mountains peaks in view. Toilet and picnic facilities area available.

Lawrence Lookout

Located 2 km off the Murray Valley

Highway between Shelley and

Berringama, this lookout provides

Mountain National Park and the

distant Snowy Mountains. On a clear

day, 360 degree views of this area of

the Upper Murray can be enjoyed.

The Southern Cloud

Memorial Scenic Lookout

A few kilometres north of Tooma on the

Tooma Road, this lookout offers

magnificent views of the Maragle and

Tooma Valleys. Complete with an attractive

covered picnic facility, the lookout also has

a series of interpretive story boards which

inform readers of the Upper Murray's

connection to Australia's first

commercial plane disaster in 1931 and

the 27 year old mystery of the plane's

fateful final destination.
