Dryandra LookoutView venue slideshowDryandra lookout

The Dryandra Lookout was constructed in 2003 within a bushland setting on Law Walk on the edge of the Mt Eliza Escarpment.

The roof's rich patina and shape was designed to resemble the leaf of Dryandra sessilis, commonly known as Parrot Bush. The species has since been incorporated into the Banksia genus but the lookout has retained the name.

With unparalleled views of the Swan River, this venue is ideal for an intimate gathering.
