Southern Cloud Lookout

Located just 5km uphill from Tooma, heading towards Tumbarumba is the Southern Cloud Memorial Scenic Lookout. From the lookout you can see the mountain ranges where the Southern Cloud aircraft disappeared in 1931. It was not located until almost three decades later, when Tom Sonter accidently discovered the wreckage on 26 October 1958.

The site commemorates the pilot, co-pilot and all six passengers who were lost when the aircraft crashed, and also acknowledges the changes made to Australian aviation laws due to the accident.

Further along, you can see the Main Ridge of the Kosciuszko National Park. The National Park is home to Australia's highest mountain - Mt Kosciuszko - 2,228 metres above sea level.

The Southern Cloud Lookout is located on Tooma Road, South of Tumbarumba.
