  • Walked up to the summit to have a coffee at the top. Wish I’d taken a flask. Coffee was too hot to taste and I didn’t see one happy staff member. All miserable. Shame.  more »
  • Lovely views from the summit and a great place to take afternoon tea. A nice drive there and panoramic views.  more »
  • Beautiful lookout to get a great view all over Brisbane city. It is easy to reach by bus or car and offers a refreshing time in nature. There are two food venues, a cafe and a restaurant which offer to have a bite of coffee with an amazing view. There is even a public piano for everyone to use and entertain the crowd with some live music. Lovely spot to take visitors to!
  • Must see lookout for both day and night. Came the first time but it was so hazy and the second visit was clear with nice city view. Only one cafe that serves great coffee and snacks (open 365 days or maybe not new year day). Air is so fresh especially in the morning and also good place for short morning walk with the young and elderly. There is no public transport to this lookout and self drive is recommended unless you are a athletic. Great uphill bicycle ride for cycling enthusiasts easily a half hour uphill ride. There is trekking trail as well. Have a great time there. Die die must go in Brisbane.
