“Good picnic destination by bike”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you like bike riding, you can access Toohey Forest from the SE Freeway bike track. Sandstone lookout is about 20 min ride from the freeway, and is a nice place to rest and have a sandwich. Take your rubbish with you, please !

“A great little escape”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is a good escape with the kids if you need to get out of the house for an hour or so. Lots of things to wander around and look at. Kids loved it.

“Hard to find.”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Typical of Brisbane, poor signage made this place hard to find. There are nice walks and good views when you finally get there though.
