more telescopes would be better

Popular spot for groups of tourists, but expect crowds.Forget about finding parking close to the lookout. Many people parked by the roadside.

The Traffic up & down to this lookout was travelling way too fast for the conditions (lotsa pedestrians/cyclist around) on the way down; you get to see all the TV Channel news stations. Parking was... More

We did this drive after work one night, and it was well worth it. Had dinner at the cafe and looked right out over the Brisbane area. Couldn't beat the view of The city. Takes half hour or so to drive there by car but can't miss it if you have the time spare.

Amazing view over Brisbane, but very busy making parking difficult. Didn't have time to do any of the walks, but they looked good.

Terrific spot to take visiting rellies or just the family. Achingly spectacular views across Brisbane and beyond. Great amenities and information at the summit as well. Popular with tourists but have never encountered a time when we couldn't get a clear photo opportunity.
