A must do for anyone visiting Brisbane but you have to go there twice. On a clear day, the view is wonderful and the place buzzes with locals and tourists a like. Come and have a ice cream and check it out, you will not be disappointed be you young or old. On a clear night it's a whole new,... More

Very nice place to visit and to admire Brisbane from the hills. There are many trails that you can adventure. Dont waste your time thinking you gonna find kangaroos and koalas. No, you wont. You gonna find one restaurant and one bar where you can have lunch and snacks. We tried to have lunch at the restaurant but surprise! They... More

Great lookout of Brisbane and the surrounding suburbs. Nice during the day but even nicer on a clear night. Definitely a place to see if you are a visitor but best to have your own car as transportation can be limited at night.

One of favourite places in Brisbane especially at night! The lights of the city are amazing. A good idea is also to go in the morning and have breakfast up there.

You can't come to Brisbane and not visit this lookout, it's very pleasant up there which offers a beautiful view of Brisbane. You can sit down and eat or drink something while admiring the illuminated landscape of Brisbane's CBD and its surroundings. I recommend you go up there during winter and drink a cup of hot chocolate, that's the treat!.... More

Arrived at 0930 for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The walkers were just getting to the top of the mountain, taking in the view, and the day trippers had had found a table at the café for a great breakfast. Wonderful views with the smell of the bush and cooking bacon combining to make for a good start to the... More

To get away from the heat we drove up here, the view is truly spectacular. There were 10000s of butterfly's around. Sat and had an ice cream and relaxed. The gift shop was a little pricey. Hoping to go back at night and eat in the restaurant sometime when the weather picks up.

easy drive up to the look out, plenty of parking spaces. The view from the top is wonderful. You can see the river, the tall group of building which is the CBD area. Worth a visit
