Beautiful views from this lookout point, busy but not overcrowded at this time of year. We were able to have a coffee and drinks in the café in a relaxing atmosphere in the sun.

I have always loved coming here at night and seeing Brisbane lite up. Such a gorgeous city. I use to come up to watch storms when i was a teenager and in my twenties. The view is lovely.

Great to do a short 1-2 hour hike and then relax at the top with great city views and enjoy a coffee/ice cream and food at the top.

A nice place to walk around the bushland surrounding Brisbane and get a good view of the city from the mountain. Great trails for mountain bike riding in this area.

It's a lovely drive up to this look out and plenty of picnic options in the surrounding area. Gives an amazing view of Brisbane. Only down side is the ability to get a park.
