“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I love this hill, I like the walk up and down it but I love the views from the top, there would be very few other places with such vista.

“The best view in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Castle hill is a Mecca for the fitness minded people of Townsville with the road and numerous tracks to negotiate.

It is also the best view if Townsville city, 360 degrees just by moving from one lookout to another. Great by day or night.

The only caution is: if driving up the road the speed limit is 40 kph, lots of tight corners and lots of walkers be careful drive slowly.

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I found the trip up to the top rather challenging, with all the pedestrians on the road. Lovely views and lovely place to take visitors to.

“Perfect spot for a Townsville Vista.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Superb views and vistas of Townsville. An easy drive or walk up to the top. Just watch the walking tracks around the top area as there are a number of hazards, you need to watch your step in several places if you intend walking around the tracks away from the main car park area.
