Worthwhile for an overview perspective of Mt Isa. A 360 degree vista. An easy drive or walk if wishing some exercise.

There is a great view of Mt Isa. There’s a good ramp or stairs to walk up to the top. Nothing that spectacular but nice to see over the area we were in.

Lovely views but very dirty, faeces and rubbish around the paths with graffiti! All of which is unfortunate but not great for Tourists to endure!!!

Great view of Mt Isa, 360 degrees. Short walk up from the car park. Stairs or ramp available. Very clean and tidy area. Limited car parking and not suitable for larger camper vans or caravans. There is a table for picnic available.
