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.

A nice drive up into the Hervey rage from the city. Amazing view!! Worth the drive from Townsville. Make sure you have enough petrol :)

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.

Worth the drive from Townsville as the views can only be described as stunning. At the tea house I don't know that I would spend $50 (fifty) on some flash coffee though

Nice park area with stunning views, would be nice for a picnic, but with the tea rooms nearby we usually stop in there.

This is a loverly stop on the way up Harvies Range just out of Townsville which can be included on a trip to Havies Range Tea rooms, also worth it 👍. The views to the south and coast are great. Off road parking for about five vehicles at a time.

Pipers lookout is a pleasant drive and a good place to view Townsville and Magnetic Island. Good spot for a picnic. Also a good place to pause when visiting the Heritage tearoom nearby

A must to see on a clear day for some stunning views of Townsville. Don't forget to also visit Castle Hill for some fantastic views of the city
