“Best views - walk up this if you are fit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We drove and my husband and 12 year old walked up. Great exercise - as many walkers as there were cars driving!

“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
