Highly recommended, just a short drive from Brisbane cbd. Appreciate the wonderful city panorama. Enjoy the Cafe/ restaurant dining with a perfect view. A few short walking trails close by for those wishing to stretch their legs. Plenty of parking. Wheelchair access and disability designated parking spots.

This is a great place to look out over Brisbane however might try to avoid weekends in future. Parking was a nightmare. One parking area we tried only had one single exit/entrance .

Great point to look out over the city Can drive up to the spot or park lower down and take the 2 km stroll up to the cafe and have a cool refreshing drink or a ice cream before taking a path back down

A fantastic spot day or night. Great spot to watch a summer storm and get some amazing photos. Restaurant has best views in town and cafe is great spot for informal dining, coffee or ice cream. A must do for visitors to Brisbane.

This is where I always take overseas visitors to look down on the full expanse of the city, the river meandering through the suburbs and the bay in the distance. It's always busy with tourists taking photos but also a popular spot with locals to watch the full moon or just get away from the hustle and bustle of the... More
