From here, you can easily reach a well-known cave complex located on a trail on the southern slope of the mountain.

At this location, which includes a large parking lot, you can take leisurely strolls, picnic on the grass, or drop by the small café at the top of the hill, which serves light meals and cold beverages.

  • Great views of Brisbane city. Not too good for photos but great to lookout. Always packed/crowded but still worth a visit
  • A small lookout that's not so well known great place to drop by to watch the sunset, sunrise or first date 😉
  • Lovely view of the city on a perfect night. Parking can fill very quickly though.
  • A nice view of the city, especially when the sun is setting. There are a couple of good walking trails too
  • Beautiful views of the Brisbane skyline. Not a far drive from the city. Cafe on the top have great food and good prices. Some nice walks in the area to explore.
