Great place to sit and have a coffee and home-baked cake and watch wild kangaroos in the mango orchard below. Many travellers go up and down the East coast and the only live kangaroos they see are in zoos, but here you have a 90% chance of seeing them, as well as the spectacular and mysterious Heritage-Listed Glasshouse Mountains. Just 50 mins north of Brisbane, and 2 minutes from the main National Parks lookout.

This is an excellent accessible view point for the whole Glass House area. This is a good starting point for any trip around the region.

Coffee was good and stayed hot. Blankets at tables was a nice touch on a cold day. Food was ok but 4 meals didn't come at same time which is always annoying. Agreed with other reviewer that Caesar salad had to be tipped onto another...More
