Amazing un-interupted views of the entire Gold Coast, parking around is unmetered. Great spot to watch whales as they have binoculars up there and also BBQs so a good spot for a BBQ/picnic.

Worth the short steep walk up here, or drive around the block to access the lovely 180 deg sea view and look right down the esplande of Coolangatta.

Great views from the top. Can drive to it but you must climb the hill at least once and be rewarded by the view and breeze.

Arrived about 1/2 hour before sunrise and lucky us no one else else here, spectacular views watching the Sun rise over the far horizon, which was somewhat spoilt by mother nature as thick dark clouds rolled up from the south and obliterated the sun, still...More
