Mt Chincogan from the Chincogan Lookout.

The Byron Shire has some iconic views. One of the most memorable is the view of Mt Chincogan as you drive in to Mullumbimby from Uncle Tom’s, thanks to a visionary town planner and surveyor who insisted on the current alignment of the road. Michael Abboud is the owner of the new dwellings that have appeared on the north-facing slope near the intersection of Saddle Rd and Mullumbimby Rd, and he’s creating a ‘Chincogan Lookout’ on his property, including a mixture of short-and long-term accommodation.
