We went to the lookout for the eclipse and it was just amazing! Not being from Brisbane I found the lookout breathtaking with its views of the city and surrounding areas. There is a little cafe in the main parking area that was open several...More

My friend and I explored the local trails here, it's a good way to spend a few hours walking some trails. Views from the top are very rewarding.

My sons and I bushwalked up to the peak so we were pretty hungry when we got there. It was 3 or 4 minutes to 2pm (or maybe it was 3pm, anyhoo...) when we walked in and we were greeted by a nice waitress who...More

Went up to the lookout to enjoy the sunset and view of the city and was not disappointed! You can bring your own chair or sit on a bench. There's a cafe up there too. Haven't tried it though.

Back home we’d call it a hill...of the size one would eat for breakfast. But here, anything taller than a snowman on a summer’s day is a mountain. Joking aside, I didn’t really know where it was until I happened to be on Logan Road...More

Lovely feel in the cafe with a nice view from the south of Brisbane. Pleasant service, clean amenities and disabled parking available. Glad we went and will gladly take visitors to visit.

Technically no. They close the gates so cars can't get through but if you wanted to, you could still walk through. I wouldn't recommend it though as it is dark and slippery.
