Reid Lookout, Reids Lookout, Reed Lookout or Reeds Lookout?? Depending on who you talk to; even within the Department.....
For years, all four names were used, even in official Department correspondance. The Department has been trying to come up with a uniform spelling and have settled on REEDS, according to Ron Jardine (Feb 2014). Ron is currently the FLO at Mt. Arapalis.

This tower has magnificent views over the Grampians National Park
The timber cabin was replaced in readiness for the 2002-2003 season.
