“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

It is worth driving up to the top of this hill.
Is a long winding road. And many people run it or ride bikes up there.
Crazy people them!
For the less fit, just drive up there and check out the 360 degree view.
The view of Townsville and the surrounding areas is magnificent.
Do it; Do it.

“An Eagle's View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

It was well worth taking the short drive up to Castle Hill for a 360 degrees view of the surroundings. We walked the few trails at the top, but felt a bit lazy, seeing all of the locals and visitors alike who had hiked up the hill from the bottom.
