This is a fair way out of town, heading out along Harvey's Range Road. It does give you an idea of the vastness of the area.This is another road out to Charters Towers. If you keep driving out of town, past this lookout, you come to the Heritage Tea rooms. A great place on a hot day. It is usually... More

If heading up or down the range this lookout is an easy stop. Beautiful views out over the valley to the ocean and is just stunning if the region has had a bit of rain.

Beautiful surroundings, authentic heritage experience, lovely food. Good service. Quiche a little too salty for me but well priced and very tasty. Partner enjoyed his steak sandwich.

Good views of Townsville can be had from here. If you're in this vicinity, try the Hervey's Range Heritage Tea Rooms. The house is of historical importance. They serve great tea and coffee and home made cakes, scones and apple pie. If you're an arty type, the craft shop will be right up your alley.

Piper's Lookout looking out over the western approach to the city of Townsville is a great spot just to take into perspective the native bush surrounding Townsville. This photo stop is a must for the snap happy visitors to the near-by Heritage Tea Rooms. Piper's Lookout is about 30 klm on the western highway towards the Charters Towers to Greenvale... More

Worth stopping off for a photo opportunity on a clear day as the view is great. There is nothing there except for car parking for about 5-6 cars. If you head up the range then stop in and then keep going to the Heritage Tearooms for a cuppa & scone

If they don't have tap water available, so they should give complimentary bottled water. Tea and scones nice, staff ok, just ok. The setting is nice and a different experience. They need to do some maintenance work on the gardens.
