“Night time view fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Went up here at night, what a view! A steep winding narrow road to the top. See the beaches, port, city, and Magnetic island.Can view from several different angles using the short walking tracks, but you might want to take a torch as there are no lights on these tracks. A must if you are in Townsville overnight!

“Top walk, top views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Many steps up the goat track but safe if steep and you will be accompanied by many walkers and runners. Views over Townsville and harbour sensational and you get close up to huge boulders.

“Magnificent Sunset from the Top”

It"s a long way up yo the top, but the sunset and view reward the effort. It gets very busy during the last our before sunset. Really worth the trip.

“stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

a long winding road but the view at the top is terrific and well worth it, apparently it is only a few meters off being a mountain

“Castle Hill is a must do!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

You haven't seen Townsville if you haven't been up Castle Hill to look at the city laid out before you. It gives you an overall layout of the city, beaches, coastline and Magnetic Island out to sea. You can also see the Palm Island group in the distance and the coast curving northwards. Loved it! (go up Mt, Stuart if you have a little more time for an even greater view!)
