  • Great views. Great coffee. We were pleasantly surprised by the cafe at the top - Love Well. Service was rather slow but the few staff that were on were very friendly and apologetic about the delays...

  • The staff varies mostly good. Although the cheap milk they use is a turn off. Lift your game put some better products in there...I would pay extra for a better product...have you checked what’s in...

  • Easy parking. Staff were welcoming and obliging. The food was delicious. A number of items have a gluten free option available. Indoor and outdoor dining. Can recommend
  • Despite the fairly small area compared to other lookouts. The area covered is supplied with a nice cafe, public toilets, free binoculars, and nice information relative to the area and history. A great place to visit.
  • Great place with plenty of parking and restroom facilities. The road to drive uphill and down is quite compact, but is sufficient in size or most vehicles. Make sure to drive with caution as some parts are concealed and/or are quite narrow. Can get quite windy up there. Spectacular vantage point for Brisbane city views.
  • Grabbing great quality fish and chips at the place on the intersection between Logan and Nursery Roads and driving up here in the evening to enjoy them has become a firm favourite between the wife and I when we aren't burdened by childcare duties. Lots of good walking trails around too.
  • Fun twisty little drive up the hill. Nice views of the city, but it's not a 360° panorama. Wouldn't hurt to have a couple of the small trees pruned before they get massive and block the rest
