Beechmont is positioned on a forested ridge leading from the Lamington Plateau to Tamborine Mountain. Outstanding views in nearly all directions means that on a clear day Cunninghams Gap and other Scenic Rim landforms are visible as well as Flinders Peak, Moogerah Peaks and the D’Aguilar Range to the north west of Brisbane.
Roads in the area are narrow and windy, some are prone to rockfalls and some with very steep slopes. The road to Binna Burra and access to Lamington National Park goes through Beechmont. The Rosins Lookout Conservation Park is a popular launch site for hangliders and paragliders.
