  • Amazing views of the city! We went during the daytime and it was breathe taking. Worthwhile to visit for 1-2 hours. Would recommend.

  • Best place to see the entire Brisbane City along with the opening to the sea and other mountain ranges. Its an awesome place to come to, sit & relax, and enjoy the scenery. Sunrise is the moment, you would definitely don't want to miss. This place is very popular among photographers as u can see different shades of the city from day to night. Definitely recommend this place to visit.
  • Great lookout over Brisbane City. The lunch was pretty good and reasonably priced considering the location. I'd recommend the Wagu Beef Burger or the fish and chips. The squid was cooked to perfection, however, the 5 spice or whatever spice they've paired with it does not go in my opinion. I'd definitely recommend it without the weird spice. The service was amazing, every person friendlier than the 1 before. Great walking tracks too.
  • Great views from North to South, east to west, and so close to the city of Brisbane. Also the hiking and riding trails are amazing, nothing too hard and for all fitness levels. There are a wide range of facilities and plenty of space for you and your family and friends to have a BBQ and a picnic. A great place to go for a birthday or special occasion. The wide range of wildlife that call this place home so close to the city is spectacular, beats the sound of traffic any day hands down. Highly recommend going there
  • Amazing lookout especially for magnificent and stunning sunrise and sunset with bird-eye view of Brisbane. Many free car park just in front of the lookout and surrounding areas. No problem for car parking. Having wheelchair access, benches to sit and rest, also big cafeteria if you want a coffee or breakfast with the view. You can take a bus up here, or just 15 mins drive from the city. Highly recommended, definitely a must while you are in Brisbane!
  • Amazing city views. I Keep on going back just to appreciate the views from up there. It can get very busy on weekends . Love it early in the morning just before getting into work it's so peaceful. Nice place to take overseas visitors for a nice pic.
